Natalie Minh MBA, MS Finance
Natalie is a former IT and Finance professional (BBA - Management Information Systems, MBA, MS Finance) with Fortune 500s. After splitting 14 years between managing global UNIX and Windows systems environments, foreign exchange derivative portfolios and structuring secured finance deals in a corporate setting while not paying much attention to her health, she looked in the mirror and asked herself if this path was taking her down the road that she wanted: spending the majority of my life in a cubicle farm, overweight, and unsatisfied with life. The answer was a resounding NO and this epiphany has led her to change direction. Natalie Minh started working in the industry as a model in Europe and North America and learned the craft of photography over the years working in front of the lens. Over time, this evolved into a career as a photographer where she trained under renowned fashion, beauty, glamour and commercial photographers in Paris, Milan and Belgium. Her images are being used by well-known modeling agencies throughout Europe, featured in advertising campaigns globally and published in a number of international magazines.
Now based in Los Angeles, her work has branched out into the Fitness arena where she contributes to top publications such as Muscular Development, Marathon Muscle, Ultra-Fit Mag, World Fitness Magazine, IronMan Magazine, etc. Natalie specializes in fashion, glamour, fitness, editorial, and commercial photography. Her services are available not only to commercial clients but also to models looking to develop their portfolio.
In 2011, Natalie took her zeal for fitness, combined it with her IT/business expertise, and launched Natalie Minh Interactive. NMI is as internet creative studio serving the health, fitness, and wellness audience. The NMI team offers comprehensive solutions ranging from internet marketing strategies, branding, web consulting, graphic design, photography, social media management and all other marketing needs. In plain terms, she combined the team's obsession with technology and marketing with the client's passion for their business. Natalie is the CEO of the FMI Guild

The ISSA is one of the only organizations I’ve worked with that has had nothing but encouragement to give to me and that’s exactly what I needed.
I had taken one or two other courses by different organizations before and they were nowhere near as thorough and in-depth as this one.
The site is very easy to navigate, the content is very educational and flows smoothly, I receive help quickly when I have a question.
The best part about ISSA, is when you call, you talk to a real person. They are quick to respond, answer all of your questions and help guide you to be successful.
This Strength and Conditioning Certification from ISSA gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge in strength and conditioning, whether it be in the gym or outside on the field or court, with a team or an individual.
It was a great experience. I enjoyed every minute of it, and i learned a lot of information that will help me in my life and with my future clients.
The ISSA program provided me with the flexibility to achieve my certification while maintaining a full time career, being a parent of two active grade school children and husband.
I have no complaints and I will always proudly display my certification and recommend you to all I know. You have given me a foundation for my future.

The book is well illustrated and supported with diagrams and photos helping to clarify the information in each unit.
Since I have been in the fitness field for over twenty years I can truly say I have gained a lot more experience and knowledge from successfully completing the ISSA course.
This program gave me the foundation and the confidence I needed to pursue my dream. I would highly recommend this program to anyone hoping to take their life in a new direction at any age.
The amount of knowledge in the textbook is really satisfying for someone who’s interested in both fitness and the sciences of the human body, and who’s willing to learn about the relationships between them.
