About Nancy

I love what I do! As a career transition and self-employment expert I work with a diverse, interesting and motivated clientele, including transitioning military personnel, U.S. veterans and their spouses, executives in transition, individuals who are facing an unplanned career disruption, and anyone who is curious about business ownership as a path to

Serving as a professional and educational resource while offering guidance and support, I offer no-cost virtual coaching throughout the United States and Canada. Once I help my clients identify their personal and professional goals, I assist them through a fact-based information gathering process, benchmarking personalized business options that promise to fulfill their personal, professional and financial needs and expectations. In the end, my clients often follow a path that they would never have considered on their own!

After spending time in Washington, DC, (where I met my husband who was assigned with the US Army Corps of Engineers, Fort. Belvoir, VA at the time), suburban Detroit, MI and Manchester, NH, I currently live in beautiful southwestern New Hampshire with my husband and two teenaged sons. In addition to spending time with family and friends, I enjoy gardening, biking, golf, hiking and travel.

Please feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn ( I am always happy to answer any questions you may have.
