Through keen wisdom and understanding of the key turning points that set Nancy on the course of her life, she has learned how every life experience fits together, and what matters most to her. As a result of having a near-death (NDE) and a near-death-like experience (NDLE), her passion is to help others while serving a higher purpose. This service is what Nancy considers her calling in life.
Nancy Clark graduated from Women's Medical College specializing in cytology, the study of cells. She worked as a cancer researcher and cytology instructor at Ohio State University for many years and worked in the clinical cytology arena in different laboratories until her retirement. Vigorously trained in the scientific method, this scientific background enabled her to analyze her own mystical experiences objectively before arriving at the ultimate conclusion that parallel realities indeed, exist. Now retired, she is passionately devoting her life to the spiritual work that is so important to her by inspiring others toward the Transcendent nature of life and into the mysterious union with the Light of God.

Nancy was given a calling during her second near-death-like experience to "speak and write" what her Great Teacher, the Light revealed to her. She promised the Light of God that she would fulfill this calling until she drew her final breath. As a result, Nancy has written five books to date; and soon her sixth book, Beyond the Mystical Near-Death Experience and Into the Unitive Experience will be published. Her first two books each won national awards.
