BIO TO COME...
Nancy is a native Seattleite who grew up in the neighborhood of West Seattle. She attended Western Washington University in Bellingham and made that city her home for many years. She has chosen healthcare as her career because it gives her a sense of “giving back” which she finds personally rewarding. She joined Swedish in 1998 as a Coordinator with Clinical Education. In October 2009 Nancy was delighted to become a member of the Cherry Hill Family Medicine Residency. She enjoys her daily interactions with the faculty and residents and is proud to be part of this dynamic program. On a personal note Nancy loves spending time with family and friends, sunny days, spending time at Lake Chelan, flowers, books, dishes, laughter, live theater, chocolate, and coffee. You’ll find her in the Starbucks line every morning.
