Nancy Gerberding has been a Newborn Care Specialist for the past ten years, having cared for over 100 babies. This is a job she dearly loves and is deeply involved in seeing it grow and improve. As Literary Director, she will apply her love of writing in many different medias for the NCSA. She will produce a quarterly newsletter; help with writing and editing educational materials for the NCSA; assist in developing new curriculums, and put together brochures and marketing materials. Nancy minored in English, with an eye towards journalism, but a move to Arizona sent her in another direction. Before becoming a NCS, she and her husband ran a successful drafting service and engraving business, where she ran the office, marketed the businesses, handled the accounting and raised a family. She is happy to be involved with the NCSA where she can once again, use her writing skills. Nancy teaches the class across the country.
