Nancy was married to Matt from 1982 to 1989, when she was a high powered television producer. The couple did not have any children. Since then Nancy has changed her focus, gone are her television glory days and she has made a name for herself educating people on Autism awareness and starting a movement called Fearless Aging. Oh and if those two great accomplishments weren’t enough she is also a published author. The Fearless Aging movement started when Nancy and friend Marilyn Kentz wrote a book called Not Your Mother’s Midlife: A Ten Step Guide to Fearless Aging. Basically what the book and the movement do is encourage women to pull together and face the things that may come their way as they reach middle age or mid life.

She created the annual Denim and Diamonds for Autism fundraiser to benefit ACT Today, which she is the director of. The fundraiser is to help families in need and is held every year at her family’s ranch. In the last two years over $200,000 has been raised for needy families who have Autistic children.
