Nancy Bourke grew up in Baltimore, MD in a humble family setting. I graduated from Loyola University Maryland (Loyola College at the time) with a major in psychology and minor in French.
In college, I learned of the sentencing disparities between criminal defendants of different races and, even more starkly, when the victimswere of different races. This disturbed me enough to attend law school, but I was also still interested in psychology.
I went on to earn both my master’s and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology and also completed law school at night. I graduated the dual-degree program in 2007 and completed my post-doctoral clinical psychology hours while living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, before moving to Arizona in 2008 to begin my career as an attorney.
I listen to and understand my clients and what they are going through better than other attorneys. I believe that is not only due to my extensive education and training in psychology, but also because I have had to deal with difficult situations of my own and understand intimately what it is like to be in crisis and in need.
