She holds a Doctorate in English Education from Rutgers. She has published articles in several academic journals, frequently on the subject of teaching poetry. In 2006, the English Journal called Nancy’s 2002 article, “Poetry as a Lens: Alternate Ways of Seeing the Novel,” one of 10 watershed articles written by practicing teachers (1912–2005) that “deserve to be reread and restudied in the present.” Nancy received honorable mention in the 2014 and 2016 Allen Ginsberg Poetry Awards, and Editor’s Choice in 2017. She has also been nominated twice for the Pushcart prize. Her book Tattoos was published by Finishing Line Press.

She takes inspiration and support from her membership in the Westfield Poetry Workshop group.
