“I believe that all of us have something – our work, our wisdom or our wealth – to contribute to a nation, a state, a city, a community, an organization or a family.”

Communications Consultant

Nancy worked as a lobbyist and attorney in Washington, DC; in Providence, RI, she has worked as a corporate counsel, journalist, and freelance writer. At every juncture, her ability to speak and write in clear, compelling, and cogent language informed her career progress and achievements.

As a corporate lobbyist in Washington, DC, she chaired a large coalition of diverse entities – Fortune 500 companies, environmental non-profit organizations, and federal, state, and local governments – that held informational workshops about expansive, new environmental regulations in six locations across the country.

She served Cranston Print Works Company, a textile company in Cranston, RI, as its general counsel for nine years. In that capacity, she advised senior management and board members on a host of business issues, presented company- and division-wide workshops, and represented the company on all legal matters.

Later, Nancy was a freelance writer for Rhode Island-based newspapers and magazines. As a grant-writer, she helped non-profit organizations in the healthcare, social service, and education fields raise essential funds. In 2006, she managed the media for a successful, yet highly controversial, ballot initiative in Rhode Island.

As editor of The Jewish Voice, an award-winning biweekly newspaper for the Jewish community of Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts, Nancy served as the chief writer, initiated a popular redesign of the paper and managed graphic designers, advertising salespeople, and freelance contributors. She earned several awards for her stories and columns. Since leaving that position in September of 2013, she has returned to writing for a number of newspapers, magazines, and non-profit institutions in Rhode Island.

A member of the Board of Tax Assessment and Review (for Providence, RI), she serves as a board member of Temple Beth-El Sisterhood and treasurer of the Rhode Island Press Association. The Leadership Rhode Island (LRI) commencement speaker for her 1994 class, she is a former board member of LRI and Community Preparatory School.

She earned her B.A. from Indiana University and her J.D. from Washington College of Law, American University.
