Natalie Carleo (Founder/President)
Founder and CEO of Toli's Miracles Incorporated, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization recognized by the State of Florida, focuses on rehabilitation, safety, counseling, job placement, emotional and mental support, religious support, educational support, and funding for a scholarship to a vocational or trade school, or a community college. Natalie named this organization after one of her closest friends for nearly 15 years, Toli, tragically passed away in a car accident in 2021. Although thankfully Toli was never personally a victim of human trafficking, he always pushed Natalie to follow her dreams. He saw and recognized Natalie's vision of helping people. Once he passed away, and in the midst of grieving her best friend, Natalie decided to memorialize him and make him proud. As a law student at Barry University in central Florida, she has a passion for doing whatever she can to make this world a better place. She will do everything she can to make more people aware of this modern-day slavery happening right before our eyes.
