Nancy had always been active in sports and fitness. Therefore, it was only natural for her to be drawn to the fitness industry after a career with IBM and staying home to raise a family of five.
Bilateral hip replacement surgery put an end to her love of running. Nancy totally attributes her Pilates practice to her full and quick recovery. Today, she enjoys cycling, Barre, Pilates, spending time with family, friends, cooking and reading.
