Nancy Lieberman
Nancy Lieberman” 
is a “Hall of Famer,” “Olympian“, broadcaster, author, and one of the greatest athletes ever to play the game of “basketball”. Known as “Lady Magic” because of her similarity in athletic ability and charisma to NBA All-Star and Legend “Magic Johnson“, Nancy has an incredible array of achievements at every level.

While Nancy’s play on the basketball court was truly magic, her off the court leadership arguably represents her true wizardry. Despite her upbringing, Nancy had an “I’m not going to be poor attitude” and ultimately turned that mindset into a very powerful message of learn, earn, and return. From making cotton candy and literally asking strangers for money to jumpstart her international career as a 15-year old, to becoming an all-around leader in so many facets of life, there is more than one reason that “Muhammad Ali” took her on as a life-long mentee and why leaders in the world of sports such as “Larry Fitzgerald”, “Joe Girardi“, “Michael Irvingand “Mike Tomlinroutinely reach out to her for input and advice.

Through personal stories and reflections, Nancy points to the importance of understanding our roles in parenting and in being part of a team, of philanthropy, and of aiming to be extraordinary.

Currently Nancy’s Foundation partnered with “Andeler Power Team Up” (see below for further details)
