“Having served on the ground floor of the enrollment management profession, I find it thrilling to see the work take on new meaning and dimension through this next generation of talented enrollment leaders.”

Nancy joined Napier Executive Search in 2014, soon after retiring from her role as Vice President for Enrollment Services at Beloit College where she spent 13 years. With a range of collective experiences in higher education spanning over 40 years, including leadership positions in enrollment management, financial aid, development, and career services, Nancy has a “true liberal arts education in Higher Ed.”

As a result of Nancy’s leadership at Beloit College and 27 years at Bryn Mawr College, where she served as Director of Admissions and Financial Aid, she is especially adept at understanding the challenges institutions with a distinct set of values and recruiting goals face. In addition to her leadership positions at Beloit and Bryn Mawr, Nancy has served on the Board of Directors for the Common Application, is a member of NACAC, and has been involved with the Council of International Schools.

Nancy and her husband live in eastern Pennsylvania where they enjoy time with their immediate family and five grandsons. They served as host parents to international students at Beloit College, and given their own extensive travels, maintain a strong interest in national and international affairs. A family of foodies, including a son who is a notable chef in Philadelphia, leads to flavorful and lively dinner conversations. Nancy is a graduate of Hillsdale College and grew up in Cleveland, OH.
