Nancy grew up in Houston in a large family with all sisters. She moved to Dallas for 15 years, where she fostered more than a half dozen children and helped run a small family business. She moved back to Houston five years ago, working several years in the medical field before joining Oak Harvest.

Nancy has two grown daughters, both career women, and two grandchildren, one girl and one boy, all of whom are very special to her. There is also a special man in her life with whom she spends as much time with as possible. She loves to decorate for the seasons and enjoys working in her yard when the weather is nice. She is a fan of the Houston Rodeo and attends as many performances as she can. She is also a big fan of the Astros.

Nancy looks forward to connecting you to the right person and extending a warm greeting when you visit. And, she makes fabulous cookies and coffee!
