Hello, I’m Nancy! I’m a New Hampshire native and have enjoyed living in the Seacoast with my husband, stepdaughter and son for quite a while, decades in fact! I’ve been a software engineer, home stager, stay-at-home mom, school and community volunteer and always a reader, writer and lover of language. I wrote a weekly running column Keeping Pace for Seacoast Sunday/Foster’s Daily Democrat/Portsmouth Herald for many years and reported on road races including my dream assignments at the Boston Marathon. I’m an avid runner and am happiest outdoors! I love to mountain bike, ski, snowshoe and hike – nothing beats the sweet exhaustion after an active day spent outdoors. Our nest is now generally empty with both kids navigating their own adult lives. My husband and I are enjoying our time together and with our two great cats. Motherhood (and life) is ever-changing and I’m adjusting to this new stage and reflecting on how lucky we’ve been.
