Natalie Pennington, 31-years-old, is more than a pretty face, good teeth and IFBB bikini competitor. She is a full time dentist. Raised in Korea by her mom she didn’t grow up playing sports. She spent her youth learning the violin and piano.

“That’s the Asian side. That’s mom taking control,” Natalie said, referring to her years of violin and piano instructions. “It wasn’t by choice, but I appreciate it now.”

Natalie spoke in an interview about balancing her profession with her bikini career.

“My biggest challenge is that some days, I deal with patient management issues, yet in the back of my mind, I know I can’t go home and relax with a glass of wine. You know you have to go to the gym after work. Most girls [I compete with] do not have the stress of the job that I do.”

Natalie hope to one day open a spa/dental practice to unite her two world and offer the dental said the comfort and health awarness the comes with a spa atmosphere. But, until then she will continue to take the IFBB by storm. She won her first national show, turning pro and looks to continue her win streak.
