- Employee Handbooks
- Internet Use Policies
- Model Sexual Harassment Policy
- Social Media Use Policies
Nance is certified in mediation by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the International Center for Ethno-Religious Mediation, and Phoenix Dispute Solutions.

DIY Conflict Resolution Author
As a child, Nance won multiple Young Authors awards and dreamed of someday writing a book. That creative pursuit was put on the back burner for decades–until she was violently assaulted on her way home from a peacemaking workshop in 2014. She was left with multiple injuries, including a head injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Prior to the assault, she had outlined a book on conflict resolution. Fearing that book could have been lost if her head injury had been worse, she finally got off her duff. She published DIY Conflict Resolution at the end of the year. Now in its third edition, individuals and groups use the book to build their conflict resolution skills, exactly as Nance hoped.

Speaker on Repeat Victimization
Nance is a frequent speaker in Victimology courses and is featured in Dr. Jan Yager’s textbook, Essentials of Victimology. She is not who most students picture when they learn about polyvictimization, or repeat victimization. It seemed she was destined to be treated poorly by people who got too close. She talks about her triumphs over her circumstances, as well as how her prior victimizations have guided her legal career.
