Nancy began her yoga journey in 2010 looking for an exercise regime that included both a physical and a mental focus while giving her a peaceful heart. At that time balancing a family, a home and a teaching career of 24 years was leading to stress and high blood pressure. Joining a gym seemed a natural place to start. Fortunately the gym offered a yoga class and Nancy decided to give it a try! Her life changed from the moment she began to practice yoga thanks to her first teacher and mentor Jessica Diktas! Yoga offered Nancy the physical and mental practice she was looking for, but so much more! Her Yoga journey did not end there. While continuing to teach in the public school system , Nancy ran a yoga studio for 6 years and practiced yoga. After retiring from school teaching in 2017 , after 33 years, Nancy became a certified Yoga Instructor and began teaching Yoga in 3 different studios. Nancy's love of teaching, and love of Yoga, lead her to teach Yoga at Fusion Academy. Immediately, she fell in love with the Fusion model and found herself spending more and more time on campus. Today, as the Director of First Impressions, Nancy can be found greeting everyone who enters Fusion or in the Fusion Yoga Studio!
