Before becoming a full-time author, Nancy trained and became a Licensed NLP Master Practitioner and Certified Nutrition Coach Pn1.
She holds certifications as a Community & Workplace Traumatologist, an Early Intervention Field Traumatologist, a Compassion Fatigue Resiliency & Recovery Educator, and as a Certified QPR Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper. As a sequel to that, she ran a Wellness Company for 5 years counselling clients in Trauma Recovery, Nutrition, Fitness, and life's daily challenges.
Nancy has spent 30 years in the Information Technology field as a Computer Engineer, with her previous writing endeavors being only technical documentation and manuals. For several years of her IT career she had the privilege of working with the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police), Canada's National/Federal Police organization, having been brought in under emergency circumstances following the events of 9/11 to assist officers and civilians alike on the high-profile case, and further with other cases that followed.
Along with her Computer Science degree, Nancy has a degree in Art/Design, she was pre-med in her late 20s, and she has a background in Exercise Science and Athletic Therapy.
There's more, but I'm sure that's enough for now... :)
