Nancy has been with Interfaith Ministries for eight years, all as Meals on Wheels Program Co-Director.
As the daughter of a career Air Force officer, Nancy attended 8 different schools in 12 years. This experience gave her the enjoyment of meeting and dealing with people from all walks of life, which is vital to her work.
In her spare time Nancy can be found walking at least one of her five dogs and caring for her three cats!

The Integrative Health Coaching Program was a dream of Linda’s and don’t you know it- she made it happen!
