Eclectic, inquisitive and detail-oriented, Nancy De Lazzaro is all of these characteristics and more. Born and raised in Southern California, her life has been inspired by music, art, movies, swing dancing, nature, and travel.
A Licensed Massage Therapist and Esthetician, Nancy has enjoyed the challenges of spa life. She quickly tried as many roles that were available and began managing the spa. While she was earning her Bachelors of Science in Communication, she applied relevant education through social media and tackled moderation of mass Facebook, Instagram and Twitter business pages. These included a chain of Day Spas, Wedding and Entertainment Companies and professional Stamp Trading Company, giving her a variety of voices to be creative through digital platformed communications.
An advocate and lover of animals, Nancy is a volunteer dog walker for the Basset Hound Rescue of Southern California and also Cats in Need (Pomona, Fullerton and Hacienda Heights chapters) and FixNation. Nancy’s mind is always working. She enjoys reading so much that she will even listen to audiobooks while driving (a valuable asset to cut the gruelling hours on road trips). That passion for reading has fueled her writing, sharing mental floss with everyone. Her active spirit keeps her on the lookout to share new experiences, with strangers easily becoming friends. She also is a strong activist for infertility awareness.
Nancy also produces the “Girl Scout Annual Spooktacular,” a yearly Halloween event for the troops of Southern California. Nancy’s love of art has motivated her to continued education in Graphic Arts, Fashion, Language Arts and Sociology.  Her experience and artistic edge have driven her to paint the world of public relations in Pantone, customizing clients with her most colorful voice.
Jade Umbrella’s newest member to the team, Nancy’s blog name beats to the drum of “La Vida Verde.” A valuable resource in providing clients with effective yet original content, event support and penning pitches, biographies, electronic press kits and more, Nancy’s innate hunger to sharpen her skill set with every chance she gets, is animating to everyone in her path.
