Nancy is a Patient Service Representative for a Multi-Specialty Clinic with Boston Hospital. She enjoys reading, biking, walking, kayaking and cross country skiing. Her vacations find her in the western part of the United States exploring adventures in remote areas of Oregon, Montana, Idaho and British Columbia with two of her daughters. After many years of educating herself about the effects of recovery and mental illness, she chose to write her first article addressing the effects of this dual diagnosis. She has become a confidant to many who battle these diseases and she intends to continue this path as a mentor.
