Author of SECRETS OF A BAR MITZVAH MOM (2005), Nancy's been spotlighted in The New York Times about over-the-top bar mitzvahs and interviewed by The Wall Street Journal on how to navigate nightmare double dates.

One of the 2010 winners of the Erma Bombeck Writing Competition, Nancy co-hosts Whine At 9, a weekly humor podcast spotlighting topical guests, and she is the voice behind SmartCollegeVisit's College Mom Minute.

She is a blogger for The Huffington Post, USA Today College, MORE Magazine's, and A frequent contributor to Chicken Soup for the Soul, and a columnist for SHADY AVE Magazine and, Nancy has appeared on television and radio, and on stage with her stand-up comedy.
