Nancy Henderson is an award-winning writer who enjoys pursuing stories that break societal stereotypes and challenge readers to look at human issues in a new light. She has published hundreds of articles in major periodicals ranging from Parade and the New York Times to Smithsonian, Woman’s Day and Southwest Airlines Spirit. In recent years, two of her primary areas of expertise—human interest and business—have “accidentally” meshed into a specialty that focuses on people who are making a difference through their work. Nancy is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors and the Authors Guild. She has won two Print Journalism EDI (Equality, Dignity and Independence) awards from Easter Seals for “raising awareness of disability issues and encouraging realistic portrayals of people with disabilities.” One of the honors was for “An Enabling Workforce,” a story she wrote about Habitat International, Inc. for Nation’s Business in 1998. Nancy’s magazine articles about Habitat have also prompted numerous calls and letters from socially conscious entrepreneurs, disability groups and parents with disabled children, as well as many unsolicited invitations for Habitat owner, David Morris, to share his message at workshops for business, education, healthcare and disability groups throughout the U.S. Nancy lives in Chattanooga, Tenn.
