In 2012, Nancy created the Sisterhood of the Sacred Scarves, honoring women of the world through scarf and ceremony. A portion of all scarf sales is donated by Spirited Woman to the Spirited Woman Foundation, which was created by Nancy to help heal and support women through actions of empowerment.
For five years, from 2012 through 2016, Nancy edited and published the revolutionary "Spirited Woman Directory: A Collection of Stories and Resources for an Inspired Life" - where 100's of every woman visionaries feature their stories. She also successfully published the popular international Spirited Woman Blogger Team - comprised of a group of talented and very spirited writers from around the world.
Known for her inspirational insight and interview style, for many years Nancy moderated the Spirited Woman Circle, an exclusive conversation series with famous women authors, actresses, radio personalities, editors, and more. She also led the creatively playful Spirited Woman Workshop in cities across America.
A mentor/teacher as well, she has mentored over 50 specially selected women in creative out-of-the-box marketing. She speaks across the country to help inspire women in a broad array of topics - from empowerment to embracing your voice to being an every woman visionary.
Presently, she focuses much of her attention on raising funds for the Spirited Woman Foundation through the Sisterhood of the Sacred Scarves Project. To date, over 2,000 Spirited Prayer Scarves have been sold to close to 1,000 women internationally, and more than 10,000 dollars has been distributed to 13 non-profits.
