Nancy Chin earned her BA in Psychology from the University of California at Berkeley. She has been a successful Executive Function Coach for more than 10 years, working with struggling, high-IQ individuals to develop the skills they need to realize their full potential.
Nancy originally learned the immense value of creating and following a clear, manageable schedule and routine—while explicitly defining goals and expectations—in her IT career, and then in her experience as a mother of two. Previously, Nancy managed IT projects and developed software and databases for large corporations around the globe including Bechtel Corporation, Kaiser Permanente, McDonnell Douglas, National Westminster Bank, Rabo Bank and Wells Fargo.
Nancy began coaching at-risk youth in schools and hospitals as a volunteer before opening Step By Step For Success in 2005, and she has been confirming and solidifying her coaching methodologies over the last decade. Many of Nancy’s clients have been clinically diagnosed with learning disabilities or Executive Function-related disorders. She continues to cater to this highly under-served population to help them access their gifts by creating individualized plans tailored to their strengths and challenges.
In addition to her work as an Executive Function Coach, Nancy is a volunteer grant-writer for the Berkeley Chess School, and helps care for animals at Sienna Ranch in Lafayette. She enjoys hiking, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
