This agency, focused on healthcare navigation and catering specifically to the aging population, quickly rose to prominence under Nancy's leadership. Over the span of a decade, NAVIGATE NC became a trailblazer in patient advocacy services across the Southeast, with Nancy wearing multiple hats as a working supervisor, marketing strategist, and operational overseer.

Beyond her roles at NAVIGATE NC, Nancy has generously shared her expertise as a mentor for NAHAC and other organizations, extending coaching services to budding advocates and startups.
