Nancy Hoehl Shapiro is currently a university adjunct professor developing and facilitating self -awareness courses for first year students. She earned her Masters Degree in Counseling from the University of Rochester, where she researched the impact of youth sports on the self-confidence of the young athlete. As an athlete in her youth, and as a mother to five youth sports players, and now grandmother to fourteen active grandchildren, she cares very much about the opportunity for kids to have fun, to be safe, and to grow in knowing their value as a person through play and team sports.
Compiling the stories for We Had a Ball….The Indelible Influence of Youth Sports on the Game of Life was both a joy and a learning experience! Nancy and her husband live in Madison, CT.
