Nancy has spent her career developing entrepreneurial solutions to community issues. Inspired by her work as a community foundation program officer, Nancy is passionate about building community resources/resilience. While living in the San Francisco Bay Area, she launched a charter school, a family giving network, numerous community forums, as well as a college mentoring/scholarship program for first generation college students. She also started a teen grant-making program in partnership with the Packard Foundation, and has been teaching youth and college philanthropy ever since. Currently, in addition to philanthropy consulting, Nancy works as the Director of Arts & Environment at The Umbrella Community Arts Center in Concord, where she is most excited about developing program partnerships with environmental groups and neighboring towns, including Lowell, Framingham and Maynard. She serves on several local nonprofit boards, and is a facilitator in a local restorative justice program.
