Before coming to the Aquarium, Nancy held fundraising, marketing and communications roles at other nonprofits, including the San Francisco Art Institute, The Getty Institute and the American Federation of Arts in New York.

Nancy is committed to service in our local communities. She is chair of the Pacific Grove Library Board and on the board of the Girl Scouts Monterey Redwoods Service Unit, and is past president of the Monterey County Youth Museum.
