A note from Dr. Nancy:

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I’d like to share my story with you.

Since earning my degree in nursing in the 1980’s I’ve worked in many areas of health care; Oncology, Medical & Surgical, Orthopedics, Pediatrics, Urgent Care, Out-patient diabetes care, and my favorite area of hospital nursing, Obstetrics. I have alwaysbeen passionate about helping people improve the quality of their lives in any way possible. My career has spanned over 30 years and has transitioned from hospital nursing to outpatient care, then to a holistic approach through yoga as therapy in my own Conscious Living Yoga Studio, health education and now to the field of Sexology.

As a health educator, I have used many media outlets to impart my knowledge and unique perspective of self-responsibility and ownership of the design of our lives. This has led me to write for numerous publications, create my own popular blogs and become a radio talk show host of my own weekly program, The Conscious Living Show. I’m always learning and sharing what I learn – this is what fuels my passions.

In 2010 I was exploring my curiosity about the difference between erotica and pornography; From a woman’s perspective. So, I teamed up with a film producer and we created the first Erotic Film Festival for women and the men who adore them (Erotikos). We included full feature films, shorts, documentaries and music videos. All films were chosen by me for entry since I wanted this to reflect a woman’s perspective of erotica. The films chosen represented 13 countries and more than half were from women. Zalman King, The King of Erotica, called us personally and was the first to submit a film. Sadly, he passed away seven months before our festival, where he and his life’s body of work were honored. His final film, Pleasure & Pain, won for Best Picture.

The resulting serendipity was the relationships spawned from the Film festival, and those who would continue to influence my life and direction of my career. The primary person of influence was and continues to be, Dr. Ava Cadell. After a brief meeting, we knew we were kindred spirits and she graciously agreed to be a judge for Erotikos. Dr. Ava turned me on to the world of Clinical Sexology. She has since mentored my professional course and was instrumental in opening the door for me to earn my Doctorate in Human Sexuality. I now have the privilege of working with Dr. Ava on many projects and have travelled with her as an assistant and colleague... both of which are a delight and an honor.

The professional field of Clinical Sexology is the perfect arena to utilize all areas of my expertise, with the added spice of a comprehensive understanding of our sexuality. As a holistic practitioner, I’m highly aware of the influential factors that either support or degrade our sexual fulfillment and freedom of expression. My education has created a more compassionate, non-judgmental perspective of sexual proclivities and an even greater fascination for the wide spectrum of possibilities for humans to experience. I passionately bring this wisdom into my seminars, destination retreats, writing, counseling and my personal relationships.

“An Open-Mind Is a Free-Mind.”

Traveling the world sharing my passion for passion is the best of all worlds for me. I am curious, interested and motivated to be a part of positive change. Witnessing people awaken to their inner fire is what drives me to globalize Conscious Living SexualityTM. I appreciate the opportunity to help make shift happen. Audiences leave my seminars with a renewed energy for living their authentic lives with a more compassionate, loving, (yet spicy and fun), appreciation of their sexual personality and interpersonal relationships.
