Nancy Nelson is an Author, speaker, professional singer and certified life coach, who was born and raised in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and completed her BA in Applied Behavioral Sciences from National Louis University in 2012. This after becoming a solo mom in 2009 when her husband disappeared. Growing up in an alcoholic home and then marrying into another alcoholic family offered real life education in the world of addiction. Certification in coaching was the natural next step for her in her journey to help women everywhere AND herself. After more than 350 hours of training, she was certified in 2014 through IPEC. It was during that training she knew she had to write her story.
She is also the Addiction Tribe Leader and a regular contributor for ESME.com (Empowering Solo Moms Everywhere). Her first book “Lessons from the Ledge” is available on Amazon and honestly shares the message in her mess.
