Nancy graduated from Anna Maria College in 1976 with a degree in Education and Special Education. She taught Kindergarten and 1st grade until becoming a stay at home mom to her 3 children. Prior to becoming a stay at home mom, Nancy developed the Kindergarten program at Aquinas School in 1978 when the school opened. She was charged with the development of the Kindergarten curriculum, much of which is still used today.
In December of 1991, Nancy and her family became a foster family for the Diocese of Arlington, Catholic Charities. Over the next 11 years, the family fostered 20 infants, some of whom had special needs. Nancy learned about Colonial CASA after moving to Williamsburg in 2004. She began volunteering in 2015. Difficult but rewarding, she has learned from each of her CASA children and the cases she has worked on over the last 5 years.
In 2020, Nancy also had the opportunity to become a wish granter for Make-A-Wish of Greater Virginia helping terminally and chronically ill children select their wishes.
Thank you Nancy for your passionate service to children!
