Blue Skin Consulting is managed by woman-owner, Natalia Hemingway. A natural businessperson and coach, Hemingway began her career in fashion and image consulting. Starting her first business at 19, helping individuals express their personal brand through clothing and presentation. Like many at this time, she found herself bouncing industries post-recession but always adding unique skills and maintaining her entrepreneurial spirit. After some years, she found herself in recruitment. Working as a consultant and retained executive recruiter for the building trades for over half a decade, Natalia grew a keen understanding of the needs and struggles of growing businesses as both a consultant for others and leader and top producer within the growing recruitment firm. Always having the best relationships with clients who wanted someone to do more than simply “push a candidate,” Hemingway found herself longing to help these businesses soar and providing services and ongoing coaching much more than any traditional recruitment model. She began providing pro-bono support to a number of women and minority business leaders who needed her expertise but couldn’t always work with the traditional methods due to the constraints that growing businesses present. Impressed and satisfied with this work, Natalia sought to create a way for her services to be available to these sized companies.
She founded Blue Skin Consulting in 2017 and decided to merge her desire to help others reach their own happiness and success through coaching with her expertise in finding, placing and retaining the right talent. She created a consulting firm that specializes in “Unmasking Authentic Opportunity and Potential in Individuals and Business. “
She is a proud supporter and active member of the Association of Women Contracts, an active legend character with Saint Paul Winter Carnival and a passionate connector. She always welcomes a chance to network and help others whether with her skills or her knowledge of a another’s.
