Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). As a public affairs officer with FEMA's Office of Emergency Information and Media Affairs, Nan traveled across the country to use her communications skills to help inform disaster victims about federal and state disaster assistance programs available to them. She was instrumental in taking FEMA’s radio network to the Internet and, while training her colleagues, was the first person to offer several news reports per day from a disaster site on the World Wide Web.

During her years in the news business, Nan was the recipient of a host of awards, including the coveted Edward R. Murrow award, which was given to WTOP for its coverage of the Mount Pleasant riots. Nan was one of two reporters at the scene for the all news radio station.

Nan's public speaking career began as a tour guide at the Arch in St. Louis; a job which helped fund her education at Lindenwood College in St. Charles, Missouri.

She now conducts training programs, gives speeches, and meets individually with clients on a wide variety of oral and written communications topics.

In addition, Nan wrote the business profiles and photo captions in a book about Washington, DC (published in 1997 by Towery Publishing in Memphis).
