Nancy Sanchez

Nancy is a mom of 5 girls ages 10 to 1 and a zoo wrangler to our 2 rescue pups, a black lab named Duke and a chihuahua named Pancho. She loves black coffee, hot weather, a bargain, and all things guacamole. Being a mom to 5 strong little women is no small task. Her bilingual home is filled with all the wonders and joys that chaos brings. On days where she finds a tiny bit of time to herself she writes in her blog which you can visit at: As a graduate of Bowdoin College she has gone classroom teaching to focusing mainly on the nonprofit education sector. She has had the privilege of working with organizations like Summer Search, Posse, and has served as a community organizer. Prior to motherhood she has lived in Los Angeles, Boston, and New York City. Currently she is a stay at home mom to her 5 amazing girls and has been happily married to her best friend for the past 18 years, (he’s clearly outnumbered). We are excited to raise our first generation American daughters together while keeping them close to their Guatemalan roots. She is very excited to find herself contributing to Boston Moms, especially coming from a fear of writing. It’s a testament that it’s never too late to keep dreaming and growing!
