- Nancy, CEO, Founder
Nancy M. Picard, Ph.D., is a psychologist and entrepreneur. She conceptualized the “idea” behind MemoryBeach in her doctoral program, when she worked with the elderly and people with physical disabilities to understand the psychology of home care support from a caregiver’s perspective.
Nancy is the developer of the MemoryBeach Wave algorthm, which matches an individuals’ working memory score with a proprietary product filter, enabling people to play The Guide games alone or with someone else. MemoryBeach’s research follow the standards set by the Western Independent Review Board (WIRB). Nancy received her doctorate in counseling psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and her undergraduate degree in English and Communications (Public Relations) from Syracuse University. She is the former head of R & D and former partner at a management consulting firm. Nancy is a Returned US Peace Corps Volunteer (Hungary 90-92), where she taught English, and consulted in the Environmental and Small Business Programs, as well as the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
After a career spent in media, state and federal consulting, and management psychology with Fortune 100 to Fortune 500 firms, Nancy launched MemoryBeach as a minimally viable concept. In the fall of 2018, friends and family helped bring MemoryBeach to life with a successful crowdfunding campaign. In 2019, MemoryBeach Co was chosen as a member of Cohort 9, in Chicaco’s prestigious 1871 Women In Science, Technology and Math (WiSTEM) accellerator.
