Growing up as a small town, West Virginia girl, Nancy never dreamed that she would spend 28 years living the nomadic life of an Army wife. After thirteen moves and making homes in Texas, Germany, VA, Hawaii, Georgia, and Maryland she is delighted to put down roots in Harford County. The many moves and family separations were very influential in her career path as she moved from working in her Interior Design major, to her work as a Consumer and Family Resource teacher, and ultimately to a career as a Transition Special Educator. Nancy retired in 2020 from Harford County Public Schools as a Transition Resource Teacher where she was a liaison between Harford County Public Schools, students with disabilities and their families, and agencies that provide transition services. She continues to be active on boards that support agencies serving people with disabilities. Nancy and her husband, Kone, live in Abingdon with their adult son, Blair, a man with autism and intellectual disabilities. Her daughter, Emily, lives in Florida with her husband, Ray, and 10-year-old son, Eli who is also on the autism spectrum. Nancy brings a “big picture” perspective to disabilities advocacy. As well as advocating for people with disabilities, she advocates for her peers: parents and family members of people with disabilities.
