Nancy is an educator, wilderness guide, and council facilitator. She began her study of wilderness rites of passage in 1981 and has been following this calling ever since. Nancy leads youth and adult vision fasts and has pioneered wilderness rites of passage in school settings. Her intention is to listen deeply in support of others’ connection to nature and spirit; to hold the deepest, widest container of safety and acceptance for others; and to empower them in the full expression of who they are.
For many years a naturalist and forester, Nancy is also an author, an editor, and currently adjunct faculty at Naropa University. Her passion revolves around helping us all remember our primordial essence and innate connection to the natural world.
