Our Team of Expert Consultants

Nancy Martin

After being trained in Ontological (the whole being) Coaching through the Newfield Network, Nancy finds herself combining her unique set of trainings and skills to help those needing that push to be more confident and effective, working with them to get what they want in business and life. Nancy is grateful for her work as a coach/trainer and for those that trust her to work with them.

Nancy started her professional career at the age of 14 as a dance instructor/choreographer/performer. By 18 she had developed and managed a new program for her company that was the highest earner in the already successful company. From there she took that studio from one to five locations over a four year period.

After maximizing her talents and skills there, she moved on to the corporate world where she was formally trained in management and became the manager that would open new locations then became the “fixer” of failing departments to bring them back to life. Nancy now loves taking this unique combination of skills to help corporations maximize their potential through her training and coaching.
