After 23 years as the Library of Congress’s chief protocol adviser and director of special events and public programs, Nancy used that experience to start her own etiquette consulting business. She advises and trains everyone from brides to corporations and government agencies on the rules of protocol and etiquette. The newest task on her list? Advising her own daughter, Sallie, who is planning a September 2009 wedding.
