Nancy was on my staff at NRVCS. I remember sitting with her in the hallway one day with one of her children when she was the calming, steadying influence—a highly valued and respected therapist. She was a bright light for her colleagues and friends. Glad she is now free as she helped others gain freedom.

Nancy, it's been 12 or more years since we first met. But you became my counselor when I was 17, I am forever grateful to you. You changed my life and helped me grow as a person. I am saddened to this obituary but thank you so much for giving me strength and so much more. Rest in peace my dear.
