“We each have a star of wholeness within us.
We each have an obligation to change the dense energy around us.
We must connect with the energy that creates everything.”

– Dona Maria


A competitive athlete, accidental photographer, world traveler, and scientist by formal training, Nancy has studied for more than nineteen years with South American indigenous healers whose role is to rebalance energy in their communities and villages.

Nancy has adapted these concepts, combined and synthesized them with theory and practices in the fields of quantum physics, chaos theory, clinical pastoral education, and living systems, and applied them to global businesses and organizations.

The result is that her clients, leaders and team members from dozens of national and international businesses, attain highly developed competencies. They become adept in creating outcomes, building relationships internally and externally, reducing conflict, enhancing internal motivation among all stake holders, and aligning business strategy and daily objectives with a deep sense of purpose, service, integrity, and sustainability.

Her clients learn to discover the key leverage point within their organizations, strategies for creating and holding space for healing, and processes for rebalancing the energy within their own “villages.”

Nancy has founded and sold two companies, designed and built three homes, raised six children as a single mother. She telemark skies, bikes, photographs, backpacks in many remote places in the world. And plays ice hockey.
