Nanci spent 30 years working in the airline industry and traveling the world. After early retirement, she moved to the southern coast of Oregon where she continued her education to become a Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach. Her business, Optimum Health & Fitness, has been successfully operating for 14 years.
Along the way, she helped create the S.M.A.R.T. reading program. Start Making A Reader Today is an Oregon-based project that pairs community members with K-3 students for two hours of reading a week. All funds to run the program are donated by the community.
Nanci looks forward to working with the Literacy Council's team of talented professionals.
