Here are some comments from individuals who have been in Nancy's workshop and/or consulting sessions:

  • "Nancy's emphasis on adult education principles results in classes that work. She brings energy and a can-do attitude that helps the beginner believe that she/he can learn and helps the advanced student recognize new learning vistas."
  • "Nancy was exceedingly well organized, dynamic, quite at ease working in a classroom and she expected each of us to contribute to the overall learning of all in attendance. Her style was participatory, engaging, supportive, humorous, and empowering."
  • "As expected, your work with the Fellows was terrific. And I continue to learn from you every time I work with you."
  • "After reading/studying some of Nancy's work, it was great to see that she is a real person who balances the academic and the practical approach to the subject of volunteerism."
  • "Applause dear to the heart of any teacher is hearing that ideas presented were useful, and that is the word I pass on to you: Our Board Treasurer, who was present at your afternoon session, has already put some of your ideas to work with her staff. She is manager of a U.S. Bank branch."
