my work

my clients

I’ve worked with wonderful folks on five continents. Some are self-employed. Some work in smaller local businesses and non-profits, others in the world’s largest companies. Here are some of them:


“I took your communication workshop this month. Thank you! I learned so much. I didn’t learn what I thought I’d learn — but what you helped me discover was way better than what I’d hoped for. With your guidance, I realized that all the work I do in the world — writing, activism, teaching — is animated by the same questions and values. What a relief. I also came up with an idea for a new book, got inspired to design some new writing workshops and retreats, and felt inspired. Thank you for your generous and gifted teaching.”

Nancy is great! She can help anyone from beginning speakers to seasoned vets improve their skills. She helped me take the dream of speaking at an international conference and turn it into a successful reality.

Every time I work with you, I make a leap!

Nancy is one of those rare human beings that you work with once and know within minutes you’ll always turn to as a trusted mentor, strategic coach and long-term friend. She has the uncanny ability to bring out the best you have to offer by tapping into your innate strengths and passions, and helping you use them to connect with an audience through engaging story and radical authenticity. I turn to her exercises and coaching tips to mentally prepare myself for every speaking engagement and interview, and I owe the level of confidence and comfort I now enjoy in front of a crowd to her personalized coaching.

Cherie Hoeger – Co-Founder, Saalt

Nancy coached us through our first large presentation as business founders. There is no question that our company’s image was boosted because of our decision to bring Nancy on as our speech coach. She is a true professional in every sense of the word. Nancy was able to take in every aspect of our presentation and look at it holistically to help us offer the best presentation possible. Nancy’s coaching was gracious, patient, and encouraging, and helped us reach the highest standard we could in the window of time we had.

Amber Fawson – Co-Founder, Saalt

BTW, all of the presentations went extremely well! Our executive team was very impressed and have already started to inquire about how we can start using the ideas presented–score!!!

Nancy is an amazing coach and I can’t imagine trying to take on an event without her.

Emily Johnson – CEO, Big Brothers Big Sisters

Nancy gets it. She asks all the right questions, listens intently and provides spot-on guidance on achieving your public speaking and business goals. She is a true leader, taking the time to understand her clients so that they can achieve real results. She has mastered the art of breaking through the fears associated with public speaking, driving her clients to their true voice. I’m so grateful to know and work with her!

I don’t know how anyone does a talk without you.


Oh, Nancy – it went so well!! Everyone was engaged and laughing…. it was wonderful! I couldn’t have asked for it to go any more perfectly. And I loved the experience! Thank you again for all of your help and support. You turned this from a terrifying experience into something I thoroughly enjoyed. I’m so grateful for our time together!


I wanted to let you know, I absolutely rocked the interview. I definitely “showed up” and was comfortable, confident and articulate. I truly am very proud of that success. Spending the time with you talking about speaking and presence has made such a difference.


I absolutely nailed the Board meeting today thanks to all guidance you’ve provided for my speaking. I received several comments about the change.

Here’s how you know you’ve tapped into something pretty special: you cry when you watch the recording you made of yourself giving your Ted Talk. Thank you for helping me perfect my TED voice.

Amy Pence-Brown – Body image activist, writer, artist and TEDxBoise speaker

The company has asked me to do additional webinars; they have gotten positive feedback from participants. They hinted that it was one of the best marketing tools they have developed.


I blew them away. Literally, they said that.


Last night we had another evening event, and a man found me and said “Hey, I saw you at the MK Nature Center and need to tell you that you did such a great job speaking! Your love for your work really comes through!”


I’m super pleased with how things are coming together. All your hard work and dedication are taking us to a new level – I am certainly grateful for you!


I can really use this info immediately, in all aspects of life.
