Nancy Palmer lives on a farm in Cortona, Italy. She is originally from New Jersey, where she was a commercial actress and model for many years in NYC. In 2010, after being divorced for many years, she packed up her teenagers and dogs in a minivan and traveled across the country. She eventually settled in Laguna Beach, CA. She opened a Stand Up Paddleboard company and gave lessons to tourists in the ocean while her kids were in school. She met and fell in love with the man of her dreams, Robert Palmer and they were soon married. Nancy turned 50 the year she and Robert were married. Tragically Robert died that September after only 8 months of marriage. Nancy traveled the world with Robert's ashes and eventually settled in Cortona, Italy, where she bought a home.
She writes a blog about her adventures in Italy with her one eyed Shih tzu dog, titled 'Stella and Nancy's Adventures in Tuscany', at www.LoveCortona.com
