Nancy’s passion and goal is to help companies communicate better with their customers and coworkers. Her passion has never wavered. It’s that simple. 


Telephone Doctor Inc. was formed in St. Louis, Missouri directly after Nancy had a bad customer service experience with the staff of the insurance company they used. She literally picked up the phone, called the agent, and told him: “Your people stink.” She explained why: how they had treated her, what they said and how they said it. Shocked, the agent asked her to please come to his office and tell them how her call should have been handled. She did.
