An empty-nested mother of 4, Nansen left the corporate world and the big city to live in a quiet coastal community in SW Washington State. Nansen’s experience is as a serial entrepreneur, owning an advertising firm in Manhattan, a manufacturing business in Southern California, traveling the country as a top motivational speaker and now co-owns a business that processes market research and public opinion survey data. Showing that the internet is a great equalizer, Nansen has reinvented herself and emerged as a leader in new media. Her ability to craft the conversation has been shown as elected officials, candidates, reporters and politicos seek her out. Involved in multiple social media formats, Nansen embraces technology while teaching other activists to self organize using online tools.
