Nancy has empowered her clients to drive their missions forward and get jobs done in industries and sectors spanning supply and logistics, energy, healthcare, biopharmaceutical, fintech, insurance, manufacturing, retail, hospitality, business services, higher education, and small business.
She works with clients to help them discover how reacting out of habit, or being on “autopilot,” does not produce the personal or business results they want. Instead, they learn to reflect on what’s happening around them, and consciously choose the most appropriate and effective behaviors or actions. They use intention and perspective to align their thoughts, actions and results, and they experiment with different ways of managing themselves and interacting with others.
The strength of Nancy’s 20+ years of corporate experience lies in the breadth of her exposure to different functions and her ability to rapidly grasp presented issues — a necessity for executives who want to be quickly understood.
In her corporate roles, Nancy led and delivered communications (executive, internal, and marketing), instructional design, and training and technology for healthcare, energy, telecom, technology, education and nonprofit organizations.
She provided thought leadership and implementation for training and development programs as well as quarterly CEO communications to global employees of World Fuel Services, a Fortune 200 company and leader in the global energy industry. She applied her coaching and mentoring skills as Team Leader of Training Systems Development for Amadeus North America, a global IT solutions provider. Earlier roles included Instructional Designer for both Tradestation Securities and Florida International University, and Education Specialist at Miami Children’s Hospital.
In each of these roles, Nancy showed a knack for facilitating growth at both the personal and corporate levels. She collaborated across all levels and functions of these diverse organizations, giving her a deep understanding of the personalities and interconnections between the people and work areas that executives and managers oversee. Even in the diversity of her experience, she was frequently singled out by senior leaders as a trusted advisor due to her capability to foresee and articulate the potential impact of their decisions and actions.

HR Director, [company confidential]
Before joining the corporate world, Nancy enjoyed a career as a successful professional violinist. In her late 20s, she was exposed to personality models. Fascinated with inherent differences between people and individuals’ blind spots, she immersed herself in years of learning.
An overachiever by nature, she lost herself in working too hard at too many things. When a major health crisis in her 40s ended her rising corporate career, she made radical lifestyle changes and refused to accept the prognosis that she would never again experience a rewarding career.
Nancy applied everything she learned in her personal development journey to transform her professional life as she transitioned to full-time coaching. She draws on her experiences and the breadth of her expertise in communications, HR, and training to help executives and managers develop a more conscious, intentional and effective approach in the workplace.
