Nancy was born and raised in Charlotte, NC, the fourth of five children. Although she has lived in Spain and Atlanta, she will always think of North Carolina as home.
Nancy, her husband Nick, and their first two sons Nicolas and Porter moved to Chatham County in January of 1997 where Nick has a private law practice. After they moved to Chapel Hill, their sons Mark and Robert were born. Their family was complete when they adopted two rescue dogs, Lainey, a PBGV-Terrier mix, and later Zorro, a Corgi-Chihuahua mix.
Returning to the Chapel Hill area was a bit of a homecoming for Nancy as UNC-Chapel Hill is where she earned her undergraduate degree in English and Spanish in 1986. Nancy spent the last twelve years founding and then directing the Bible Church Preschool at Chapel Hill Bible Church. She also used that time to complete 180 hours of training to work with children ages 3-9 in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Alongside her work at the church, she hopes to take 90 more hours of training in the future to work with children up to age 12.
Now it is her great joy to use her training to serve as a volunteer Catechist at Holy Trinity using the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Montessori-based Christian formation method for children. This approach is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. Nancy is deeply grateful to have designated space to create an atrium for the children. The "atrium" is a room prepared for the children, which contains simple, yet beautiful, materials the children use to help them absorb the most essential proclamations of the Christian faith. Contact Nancy if you would like to learn more!
When Nancy is not working, she enjoys cooking, baking, making materials for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, reading, listening to music recommended by her four sons, going for walks, doing anything related to dogs, and volunteering as a parent rounder on the pediatric oncology floor at UNC Hospitals where one of her sons was treated for cancer in 2016/2017. Thanks be to God, he is well!
Nancy is excited to be able to use her administrative gifts to serve Church of the Holy Trinity and is thankful for the opportunity to get to know members of our congregation more deeply.
