Nancy is known across the United States for her lively lectures on Waldorf education, parenting, child development, the spiritual feminine, the mission of the spiritual America, and threshold work. She felt called to threshold work, first assisting with home births, and then pioneering support for home deaths in the community, which she has done for over thirty five years. She has taught children at all grade levels and founded three Waldorf kindergartens. She is a co-founder of Rudolf Steiner College, a former Waldorf teachers’ college and taught there for forty years.
An artist as well as a writer, Nancy has published A Child’s First Book, Mia’s Apple Tree, Living Into Dying and The Tear, A Children’s Story of Hope and Transformation When a Loved One Dies as well as art prints and cards for children and adults.
Nancy and her late husband Gordon were both pilots and built their own airplane. Nancy continues to live in the Sierra foothills on White Feather Ranch. The ranch serves in many capacities to bring people together for sustainable organic agriculture, supporting spiritual education for teachers and children and building sustainable communities for the future.
