Who We Are
Nancy is a teacher. And a public health expert. And an expert in the science of behaviour change. Oh, and she loves to write curriculum. Funny girl. She loves to learn and to inspire that same spark of learning in others. Armed with five degrees in education, sociology, public health and leadership and 30 years of experience, she has served as a teacher, a developer of global competency sets and toolkits, a curriculum and toolkit developer/designer for assorted audiences and literacy levels, and a behaviour change expert in low-resource, response and complex situations in over 85 countries. She has worked with schools, communities, ministries, academia and NGOs and has authored numerous books on teaching, public health pedagogy and behaviour change.
