She grew up in Westport, and upon completion of Westport Central School, attended SUNY Plattsburgh, graduating in 1962. During Nancy's teaching career she taught elementary education in Plattsburgh, Keeseville, Schenectady, Washington D.C. and Vallejo, Calif.

He was stationed in France where Nancy continued her educating career as a tutor. She also enjoyed traveling throughout the United States and experienced several cross-country trips.
