*Phyllis Diller loves Nancy's book*
*Norman Cousins said Nancy is a very funny lady*

Contrary to popular opinion, Nancy Leff did not invent her last name to start Leff-Laffs. Nancy’s professional background includes Training and Development for UCLA Medical Center Human Resources; Job Developer for United Way and teaching for the Los Angeles Schools. Realizing her true nature as an entrepreneur and free spirit, she began her own career consulting practice, The Career Coach, assisting scores of clients in writing resumes, leading creative job searches, becoming adept at interviewing and in living their life dreams.

Now she spends her time living her own life dream as Director of Leff-Laffs Communications, speaking to businesses, hospitals and organizations on the importance of laffter and play. Author of LIFE: A LAFFING MATTER, Workbook in Laffter & Play, an audiotape of the same name and the soon-to-be-published A LAFF A DAY, she also writes articles, proofreads and edits.

Additionally, Nancy has performed on L.A. stages in her own musical comedy act and in local plays, coordinated clients’ clothing as The Wardrobe Wizard and has been known to dress in outlandish costumes to perform her original songs as NancyGrams. Nancy acted in three plays at the Santa Maria Civic Theatre — as the paranoid occultist Willa Mae in "A Bad Year for Tomatoes," the delightful, magical lead, Mrs. Rosen, in "Kringle's Window," and compassionate, nurturing Mrs. Potts in "Picnic." She's been featured in the L.A. and Central Coast television and newspapers as the HumorQueen.

Leff earned a B. S. in Education from Temple University (with minors in fun, accessories and chocolate), has taken post-graduate studies in sociology and psychology.

During her years in CA, Nancy was active in the Los Angeles and Santa Maria communities, fighting for truth, justice and the HumorQueen way, along with performing on stage. Now back in her hometown of Pittsburgh, Nancy taught the New Choices Career Development program at Carlow University. Always available as a Motivational Speaker and Happiness Coach, Nancy is also focusing on her other great love, freelance writing. To read Nancy's recent articles on Humor and on Robert F. Kennedy, please click the Articles link. A Licensed Science of Mind/Religious Science Practitioner, she instills a positive spirit in everything she does, and having a strong social conscience (but too young to be a real granny), Nancy loves singing with the Pittsburgh Raging Grannies. Nancy Leff is guaranteed to make you laff and you'll walk away with fun ideas on how to add more joy in your life and workplace.

She is committed to spreading joy, along with the knowledge that We Don’t Stop Playing Because We Grow Old - We Grow Old Because We Stop Playing!

Ms. Leff has stolen the following degrees:
B.S. - Bachelor of Spontaneity
M. F. A. - Master of Fun Actions
Ph D. - Playful Hilarity Distributor
