Nancy joined EMSWCD in November, 2020, after eight years running a successful consulting practice in Portland. Her clients and work there included: The Resources Legacy Fund, helping them to tell stories about how water scarcity impacts farmers and other landowners around Oregon; Sustainable Northwest, helping to launch the Western Juniper Alliance; working as the de facto Executive Director of Oregon Business for Climate to pass responsible climate legislation; providing marketing and communications expertise to sustainable energy efforts; as well as facilitating public process for countless other clients. She also served as a senior policy advisor for Governor Kulongoski and before that was Chief of Staff to former Portland Mayor Tom Potter. Nancy has lived in Portland for over 20 years, raised her two kids here, and enjoys taking off for Central Oregon with her two rescue mutts whenever she can.
Nancy is excited to be part of a team again and continues to be amazed by all the important work being done by the team at EMSWCD.
