About the Author

Nancy Jaicks Alexander is a retired consultant on trauma, grief and hospice. She was born in 1933 in Lake Forest, Illinois. She wanted to be a professional actress and attended Northwestern University's Theatre School. Her path from there did not lead to the theatre. She moved to San Francisco in 1953, and to Berkeley in 1971. She served on the KQED Board of Directors from 1976 to 1980.
In 1981 she spent a year in residence at Esalen Institute studying Gestalt Therapy, Encounter Group Dynamics, Psychodrama, and Intuitive Work. In the Fall of 1982 Elisabeth Kübler-Ross asked Nancy to begin training to become a member of her international teaching and workshop staff. Nancy became one of Elisabeth's "Life, Death and Transition" workshop facilitators in 1985 and continued working on that staff through 1993, shortly before the workshops were discontinued in 1994.
In 1992 she and her late husband, Robert Evans Alexander, FAIA, helped to co-found the first prison hospice in the world, at Vacaville, California. She continued to visit the prison regularly to work directly with inmates who volunteer to support fellow inmates who are dying. She retired in 2010 after twenty-five years of community service at the prison.
