Nancy Sharp

Nancy Sharp is a BOLD Living Expert, keynote speaker, trainer, and coach who presents custom programs about loss, gain, and the BOLD path forward. Teeming with authentic wisdom, energy, and just the right dose of humor, Nancy delivers keynotes that leave audiences with practical tools to move beyond adversity and the “gray” of business and life—toward narratives of their own making.

Some select appearances include New York’s 92nd Street Y, University of Denver, American Society of Safety Engineers, Centura Health, EPIC Experience, Colorado Women's Chamber of Commerce, the Arapahoe Library District, and the American Academy of Psychotherapists (AAP).

Nancy's first book, Both Sides Now: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Bold Living, is the recipient of eight literary awards, including the prestigious Books For A Better Life. Her work has also been featured in The Best Advice in Six Words. Forthcoming is a nonfiction book for adults about boldness.

Nancy holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Goucher College and writes regularly for The Huffington Post and ESME (Empowering Solo Moms Everywhere). She is the architect of the Boldest Year Yet social media campaign and BOLD Living Now for Women: Moving Forward When Life Changes, both of which offer opportunities for personal/professional growth and development. "You made me believe in the power of my own narrative," says Nancy Jones of the University of Denver.
