Online Community Manager

Contacting NMG Staff

Have a question, comment, concern, or suggestion? Want to contact a staff member at NMG for any reason?

You've come to the right place! Below, you'll find the names, profile page links, and brief role descriptions for each staff member.


Chief Executive Officer


In addition to being the CEO, Nancy is also NMG's Founder—the woman who started it all! Because she handles so many other things, Nancy can't log in to the online community very often, but when she does she always reads and responds to PMs.


Online Community Manager


Yeah, that's me. If you have a question or comment about our Member Rules & Responsibilities, using the website, or anything else, please feel free to contact me any time! I'm on here regularly and will always answer to the best of my ability—and can also pass messages along to other staff members, if/when applicable.


Aside from online community management, Joe also does tons of other stuff behind the scenes—and founded NMG along with Nancy! The man does it all. Since we share the OCM role, there's a decent chance that questions sent to me will find their way to him as well, or you can PM him directly.




The single-handed supershero who compiles, designs, and edits NMG magazine every two months. Messages related to the magazine? Helen is your lady!


Contributing Editor/Book Coordinator


Lacey is an editor and writer who (in her own words) "coordinates book-related goodies" for NMG. Check out Luna's Reading Corner for monthly reading recommendations, and for awesome author interviews podcast she runs! Contact Lacey if you're interested in being a co-host for a podcast episode, or with anything else related to Luna's Reading Corner.




Maybe not technically staff, but this super person helps out with all kinds of things and does a super job of it. Along with me and Joe, she can also help with questions related to the online community. Valentina is online here regularly, so should see PMs fairly quickly most of the time.



Note also psychotherapist Jill, who answers questions and provides advice about dealing with any of the many life issues and stressors that you may encounter, the mentoring Sister to Sister team, and all our fabulous moderators, who review and approve posts on NMG and are instrumental in keeping this site the safe, healthy, happy community it is. <3


So there you have it! And you/your parents can always get in touch with NMG via our Contact Us form, if you would like.

Looking forward to hearing from you. ;)

Speaking Before Thinking

I tend to snap at people a lot even when I'm not feeling angry and I don't know why and I want some advice on how to stop snapping so often. -Anonymous      I’m sorry that you’re struggling with this; it’s really difficult when emotions start bubbling over and a line is accidentally crossed, especially when it’s toward a loved one. I can certainly relate to this; when I get overwhelmed, stressed, and anxious, I do have a tendency to be a little cold and, sometimes, rude to the people I love.…

Help with Making Friends

My mom says that I need to put myself out there more and be more social, but I really struggle with, say, just going up to the other kids in a class or program and talking, or making friends. Any tips for being more social? -Anonymous      I myself have had a lot of trouble making friends, speaking out, and being social throughout my life. I’ve always been quite shy, and especially when I was younger, I worried that I’d never be able to make good friends. Now I’m seventeen, I have a small group…

Dealing with Scary Thoughts

Okay i am feeling a bit scared about Dying I never really thought about till my eleventh birthday And i really need some advice – Anonymous      This is a really big, serious topic, but I want to try to tackle it because I know I would have appreciated it when I was younger. As a younger child, I’d sometimes have trouble falling asleep, and with all that empty time for my mind to wander, I always found it drifting towards death. Before I give any advice, I just want to say that I’m really…

How to Talk to Your Crush

I have a crush on somebody, and I really like them. I want to tell them that I have a crush on them, but I’m worried they won’t like me back and I won’t even be able to be friends with them. What should I do? -Anonymous Your not alone anon, that’s a fear everyone has when they have crush- and it makes sense! Your admiting your personal feelings to another person, being scared of rejection is completely understandable. First of all, if you’re not already friends with this person, try becoming…

And if you want to, you can change your user name to a "not real" name that will then also be used in the magazine if your Ask A Girl question is published.
