A colleague told me about Nancy and the Collaborative Workbook, and that she was speaking at the next monthly WEB meeting in Houston. I attended her presentation and was so impressed, I asked her for her business card and immediately recommended to our CEO that we bring Nancy in so that she could give her presentation and make her workbook available to our employees. She is very well spoken, professional, likable and has an excellent interpersonal style, making it easy for participants to ask her about subjects that otherwise may be difficult to address. Her workbook is comprehensive, well-organized and easy to understand. Our employees gave her an outstanding rating! Using her workbook, my husband and I were able to have a good conversation about our end of life wishes and get our paperwork together. I have since found it much easier to have these conversations with other family members and friends. I highly recommend Nancy and will be forever grateful to her.

Testimonial for Y Collaborative Workbook
“Your workbook was so easy for me to follow. I completed it and then took it in to my estate attorney and it made everything so much easier for us to get my estate plans in order. Thanks, Barbara Armani”
I consulted with the Y Collaborative to seek advice regarding implementation of my final wishes, relevant paperwork and anything else I might need to plan for my end -of-life issues and other possible unforeseen events. The information I received was appropriate to my situation, as a single woman without relatives living near me. My advisor, Nancy Rust, took time to understand my preferences and needs. She clearly and compassionately presented me with…..Read Full Letter
I was introduced to Nancy last year and it seemed to come at the perfect time. Nancy presented to my company on the benefits of Y Collaborative and I was sold. This is something that everyone should have no matter their age! Nancy is well educated and able to present in a heart-felt manner. Not only is Nancy passionate in what Y Collaborative stands for, she also cares about the people she comes in contact with. During the time that I met Nancy, my Aunt became very ill. Nancy helped me with her planning and genuinely cared about my Aunt’s progress and well-being. We plan on having Nancy speak to our employees in the fall.

Although my family live in Australia, the conversation is universal. We found the Y Collabotative workbook very useful. The wording in the “Determining My Personal Medical Preferences” section in particular was exactly what we needed to complete the Australian forms ~ Carol W.
Thank you so much for your April 27, 2011 presentation at MD Anderson Cancer Center on End-of-Life Planning, co-hosted by the PeopleFirst and the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender (GLBT) Networks. It was very informative and garnered an incredible amount of interest from our employees, their families, and even our Benefits office. We received several messages from attendees who found the information vital in their own lives and who truly enjoyed the delightful presentation. Your skills as a speaker and presenter were remarkably well received. You have a way of making a room full of people engaged and comfortable enough to discuss what can be a difficult topic.

I wanted to let you know how significant Y-Collaborative’s presentation to the Association of Women Attorneys was for me. As you predicted, life planning takes a great deal of time and intellectual and emotional effort. For me, once I heard your presentation, I appreciated that my husband and I needed to take action for our own future planning as well as that of our adult children.
