How do you juggle being a successful public health consultant, a certified registered nurse, a professional international chef, a wife and amazing mother and manage to hold your own in the catalogue of distinguished Nigerians ranking high in the country index for successful entrepreneurs?
That is the unique and quintessential narrative of Nancy Umeh, a wife, mother of two children, registered nurse, public health consultant and professional chef.
Are you surprised that one woman can muster the intellectual capacity and courage to fittingly combine all these accomplishments in a male dominated world and yet hold her own in the face of daunting pressures and inhibiting limitations?
Don’t be at all because Nancy has certainly earned her place in the sands of history for being a rare breed of refreshing hope to this generation of women who are breaking the glass ceilings to etch their names in the annals of the world.

When Nancy is not sending out safe cooking wares to Nigerian homes and setting up warehouses she films and shares healthy family recipes on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook.
