Nancy Hankel is more-or-less a Tucson native (she still remembers her family’s landline having a 602 area code when they first moved here in the early 90s) and is now a single mom to a 6-year-old son. She works for a local program evaluation firm called LeCroy & Milligan Associates, Inc. where she and her colleagues help organizations understand their impact and improve their services in areas like education, public health, and mental health, among others. She holds a doctorate in education from UCLA and became a mother while completing that program in 2017. Thanks to her firsthand postpartum experiences, she learned about Postpartum Support International and is now a volunteer with the Arizona chapter of PSI and involved in various postpartum and maternal support groups both here in Arizona as well as nationally. After finishing college in Michigan, she lived in California for almost 14 years and returned to the Tucson and the Sonoran Desert in 2022. She is always open to connecting with anyone in any capacity in the postpartum space and welcomes you to contact her via email at [email protected] if you’d wish.
