I value my clients and I value their very kind words - "I have had the pleasure of hearing Nancy speak to special education administrators and professionals at a state conference, and at another time, my school district's parents and community members. I look forward to her coming back soon for our campus administrators. Nancy shares her story, message, and guidance in such a genuine, insightful and thought provoking manner. She captures her audience immediately and connects us to multiple concepts...the angst of adolescence, coming to terms with having a disability, and lessons about confronting challenges, learning and living to reach higher and how we can teach and support children to learn, to become independent and persevere, and to "prove them wrong"." -Carol Bushnell, Executive Director of Special Education, North East ISD, San Antonio "Nancy – your Keynote and Workshop were both excellent. The early feedback and comments are outstanding. You provided real value, practical tips, tools for our HR toolboxes, and the Best Practices sharing in small groups was well integrated into the workshop, so thank you for listening to what we said that we wanted, and for providing it. Your story is so compelling, but you deliver much more than a compelling story. Often, when we hear from speakers who have faced challenges and overcome difficulties in their lives, we are moved by the story, but a few days later, it’s difficult to apply what we heard to our own lives and professions. You connected the dots in a way that was compassionate, humorous, and practical. Your pragmatism comes through and that is part of your gift." -Karen Smithson, Co-VP of Diversity & Inclusion for AHRMA (Austin Human Resource Management Association) ... See MoreSee Less

While attending the @USBLN2014 conference in Orlando last week, I learned that Arthur Young, founder of Ernst & Young, was both deaf and visually impaired. He first dreamed of becoming an attorney but, when that didn't work out, he decided to become a CPA. He went on to build a billion dollar accounting firm...being both deaf and blind. How big is that brick wall standing between you and your dream? Keep climbing! We need your answers! ... See MoreSee Less
