Nancy Noderer-President and Founder, RN, BSN, EAGALA Certified Equine Specialist
Nancy is a registered nurse, currently employed in a local ER. She has had over 38 years of critical care and ER experience, including a position at Hospital Albert Schweitzer in Deschappelles, Haiti. Having had many opportunities to be present during patients' most critical life experiences has challenged Nancy to develop "in the moment" responses to crises. It has also instilled in her the importance of a having a cohesive and effective team.
Nancy has had a lifelong love of horses, having raised and trained her own. During her interactions with horses over the years, she observed many interactions that seemed almost "magical". Attributing these observations to being a "certifiable horse nut", she put them aside until later adulthood when she began studying natural horsemanship. It was at this point where science, history and psychology came together making rational sense of this whole phenomenon, previously held in secret by horse owners. It was at this time also that Nancy came to the realization that many of her most effective relational techniques with challenging patients and staff were based upon her intuitive work with horses. It has now become her passion to share this ground-breaking approach to self-awareness and relationships with others.
