Nancy began working as the Office Manager at The Sage School in Hailey, Idaho in 2012. She has a Bachelor's Degree in Geology from the University of Northern Colorado and Master's Degree in Environmental Policy and Management from the University of Denver. Nancy's career history includes 20 years as a practicing environmental geologist and environmental regulatory compliance consultant focusing on mine site compliance, Superfund site remediation, and environmental impact studies. She has also served as an adjunct professor at Front Range Community College in Fort Collins, Colorado, teaching a variety of environmental science courses. After adopting her daughter Inez in 2006, Nancy “retired” from her travel-intensive career and began exploring other locally-based career opportunities and immersing in local civic pursuits, ultimately leading to The Sage School. She enjoys the great outdoors, especially time spent with family and friends (including her canine buddies) hiking, biking skiing, disc golfing, horseback riding and enjoying nature in its infinite forms.
