Nancy has been performing in plays and musicals since before she knew how to read and feels very honored to have turned her life long passion into her profession. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre. She started teaching in high school when she served as music director for a community theatre production of Annie. The company of actors was made up entirely of individuals with a wide spectrum of physical and mental disabilities. In College, aside from appearing in many of the University’s musicals, Nancy taught private piano, was the lead vocalist in a local Jazz combo – The Furlough Sextet - and taught Jazz Dance to adults with Down Syndrome.
Since moving to San Diego in 2016, Nancy has worked as an educator of the performing arts in conjunction to being a professional actor in the area. She is currently a teaching-artist at Kalabash School of Music + the Arts where she instructs voice lessons to private students of all ages and directs handmade musical theatre productions for kids. Nancy also runs her own preschool dance program - Movers & Groovers and is the co-creator of Lucy Loop’s Journey through the Land of Lost Things.
Nancy continues to be humbled and inspired by the wonderful and authentic community of artists in San Diego, and is beyond thrilled to be be a part of it all. When she’s not teaching little humans how to squash their grumps, dance about and sing their hearts out, you can find her performing in the 8 piece, all female Kate Bush Tribute Act Baby Bushka.
