Nancy is currently working as a medical technologist and has a clinical laboratory background. She also has worked for the Diocese of Venice, as an administrative assistant at their Spiritual Retreat Center, Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
She was born in Perth Amboy, New Jersey – maiden name Bayus.
She attended Sayreville War Memorial High School; then graduated from East Stroudsburg University, in Pennsylvania, with a bachelor’s degree in Laboratory Medicine.
The few long years she spent in the Pocono mountains was enough to send her to Florida by 1987. Pompano Beach was “home” for several decades. Some years after meeting and marrying Martin Gazo, they relocated to Venice, Florida. They make their home with several Greyhounds now and have become very active in Greyhound adoption. They also are members of Paws For Friendship, and all of their Greyhounds are registered Therapy Dogs.
Nancy’s interests include reading, yarn work (although she is a beginner at knitting and crochet), chess (again, not highly accomplished), and writing. She would love to be a published author someday. In the 1980s, she was a competitive bodybuilder – and was Ms. Summers On The Beach, 1989. In the 1990s, she studied Martial Arts, earning a yellow belt in Aiki-jujitsu, and a brown belt in Kenpo Karate. Animals and animal rights have always been my main passion. She has also been a member of MWA – Mystery Writers of America – for a couple of decades. Her dream is to be able to retire, and indulge her interests.
Short version: She has seen a lot of crap in her life, so far – but has also witnessed a lot of good!
