Her former jobs include being a secondary education teacher in the Union City, PA School District, working in local banks, managing an electrical construction business, and serving as a chiropractic assistant for a local chiropractor.  She is currently employed full-time by St. Joseph Church – Bread of Life Community as Director of Ministries and Pastoral Minister.

In her spare time, she enjoys reading, playing and listening to music, playing card and number games, walking, and keeping up with her 3 sisters, 1 brother, and 12 nieces and nephews.

Nancy is very committed to her financial work at the Foundation and admits that it is a wonderful extension of the work she performs at her church and a great opportunity to share her faith.
