In 1996, she entered the educational realm as an occupational therapist using techniques designed to help children with special needs in the public school systems. She has worked for the University of New Mexico as an Autism specialist, and in a private pre-school in New Mexico to integrate special needs children into regular classrooms. In 2005 she moved to beautiful Yelm, Washington and began working at The Children’s School of Excellence as their Pre-School teacher.

Nancy is happy to be part of the team at The Phoenix Rising School where she can be seen sharing her love of nature, in all sorts of weather, with her young charges.  She works directly with all stages of a child’s growth and implements her knowledge and experience to bring the child to their fullest potential.
