The top 3 reasons I'd recommend Natasha / NVDM coaching. Community. She has built an amazing community in the sport. While you may arrive to a race alone, I have consistently felt the support from the other athletes on the team and from her directly at races and during group workouts. Accountability. I have seen more growth in all 3 disciplines in 2 months then I saw during a 10 month period training on my own. The data in areas such as VO2, FTP, HR, swim splits and run PRs simply does not lie. She gives you the structure and accountability to keep you training at your best. Communication. She is always available. More specifically with consistent notes in your workouts, in person at multiple weekly meetups and individually as needed. You will get out what you put in.
