About Nancy Martin
My journey to where I am today started when I was a wee little child. :) No. Really.
I started dancing at the age of three (because no one would take me at two) after my invisible friend, Shirley Temple, impressed me with her skills. That was it. I was hooked! As I grew older, I gradually realized the outlet that dance can be for me. It was my escape from all of the scary, ugliness that was waiting for me outside of those dance studio walls. It was my refuge. Dance enabled me to feel whatever I wanted to feel. I could easily alter my mood or personality or life just by picking the right song and choreographing the right moves. This was it! I found my passion at a very young age. I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life....... until I didn't.
After 25 years of dancing and 16 years of teaching and over 5 years of studio management I was burned out! Creatively as well as emotionally. I wanted to get as far away from dance as I could. So, banking it was. I went into banking and quickly moved my way up the ladder to manager there too. I loved management - well most of management. In the same way I loved teaching - well most of teaching. I felt like there was something else out there I was missing but couldn't quite find it. Psychology? I knew I couldn't take on the problems of others without driving myself crazy. Then, like most great things in my life, it fell in my lap after a leap of faith. I found coaching.
I fell into this world of ontological (the whole being) coaching and knew immediately that this was it! This was the thing that I always wanted to do but didn't know it existed. I was home. Because somatics (working with the body) is such a big part of the Newfield Network training, I immediately knew that my dance background would blend nicely. I also remembered what it was like to be there for my older students when they needed someone to guide them besides their parents. I also remembered the rush of management and working in the corporate world and having a positive influence over a company. I also remembered what my younger years were like and how I would do anything to prevent some of those scary, ugly experiences from happening to others. This was really, really it! I found my complete passion all rolled into one. Using all of my work experience, dance training, management training, personal experiences, passion for helping others - especially those influencing young dancers - has come together in one great, unique package.
So, here I am with a strong desire to put all of my years of experience and training to work for you. To strengthen your business, strengthen your employees and customers, strengthen your lives in ALL the ways I know how. I can't wait to get started with you!
