About Nancy Salamone
Nancy Salamone, former financial services vice president, blends her Wall Street know-how and her personal story to turn her vision of empowering all victims worldwide into a reality. Her twenty years of corporate experience and her personal journey as a survivor of domestic violence gave her the necessary resources to create The Business of Me, which educates survivors of domestic violence on self-management, promotes identity and independence.

She has documented her own struggles with domestic violence in her book “A Victory Over Violence” which aims to inspire other people facing similar obstacles.
