Nancy hails from Northern Wisconsin where, in her youth, she earned her private pilot’s license and joined Amelia Earhart’s The Ninety-Nines flying club. She was the first female air traffic controller to serve in the FAA’s Green Bay Tower. After transfers to Alton IL and Daytona Beach FL, she landed in Fayetteville NC. As a proud PATCO member fired by Ronald Reagan in 1981, she earned her paralegal degree and spent 30 years in Charlotte law firms and at United Dominion Industries where she created their corporate travel program. Since moving full time to Hendersonville in 2015, Nancy volunteers for Project Dignity, NC SHIIP, Four Seasons Hospice, WNCW, NC Arboretum, Conserving Carolina and Etowah Elementary School, among others. She and her husband are avid birders often traveling to Central and South America. She hopes to do her small part for LWV helping to preserve democracy in America.
