THE STORY:

 Dr. Natalee Sansone is a native of Jamaica and immigrated to the United States at the age of nine. The eldest of three children, Natalee spent her early years in Brooklyn. Natalee excelled both academically and athletically while in boarding school at the prestigious Lawrenceville School in Princeton, New Jersey. She went on to attend Harvard University where she earned a Bachelor’s in Chemistry, won the Josyln Award for Science, and was a 4 year letter winner in track and field. Standing nearly six feet, Natalee briefly explored a career in modeling after Harvard, finding work in magazines and runways in New York.   

 Natalee began her medical career conducting research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and The Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston. Natalee later earned a medical doctorate from MCP Hahnemann School of Medicine, where she was named a National Medical Fellowship Scholar. She went on to complete her internship and residency in internal medicine, and her fellowship in gastroenterology, at the New York Hospital of Queens. She was a partner at Starling Physicians and Eastern Connecticut Endoscopy Center. She also worked as a Medical Director for Aetna. Currently, Natalee is a board certified gastroenterologist practicing at Banner Del Web and Banner Boswell.    

Natalee strongly believes in providing social mobility through education and commits herself to community service. Natalee is heavily involved in Jack & Jill of America serving as chair for the annual Living History program. She is an active member of The Links, Incorporated chairing both the chapter’s Philanthropy Committee and the chapters first Phoenix Emerald Foundation Tennis Tournament. She is also on the Advancement Committee at the Phoenix Country Day School.    

Additionally, through her involvement with The Judy Dworin Performance Project, she mentored school-age children who have incarcerated parents, always pushing belief in self and the value of education. Natalee was featured in Black Women in Medicine, the first documentary and book to focus on unsung Black Women Doctors. She was on the board for the Great Hartford Urban League while her family resided in Connecticut. In August of 2017, Natalee relocated to Paradise Valley, AZ with her husband of nearly 17 years, Dwayne and son, Hunter. She is an avid runner, tennis player and loves cooking.
