After more than 25 years of advertising, marketing, and consulting, Nanette jumped to the
"A team"—working to further worthwhile ministries to make the world a better place. From
corporate world to the "real" world, as Director of Communications at All Saints' Episcopal
Church in Phoenix, Nanette gets to marry the best of marketing and communications with
the ability to truly help people at all the touch points of their lives. In addition, she provides
the liturgical materials needed for all worship services. She still dabbles in the creative and
marketing arenas for fun. The real reward is making a difference in people's lives through
simple acts of kindness.
From owning and running an advertising agency for 15 years with annual billings exceeding
$9 million (Bellewood Group), to being a Director of Branding for the Phoenix office of a
$13 Billion Internet consulting firm (marchFirst) to helping people re-market themselves
after being laid off (for world’s largest career transition organization, Right Management),
Nanette says all of her work is about "finding creative solutions for today's dog-eat-dog
world." At one time, she was "Mom" to more than 150 refugees known as "The Lost Boys
of Sudan." She currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband and a myriad of
rescued pets including, but not limited to, chickens, dogs, cats, cockatoos, and a horse.
Her extracurricular activities also include Krav Maga (Israel's hand-to-hand combat system),
firearms training, and reading thrillers/mysteries. She hails from Los Angeles, California,
where she graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. She has never met a chocolate chip cookie she did not like.
