Nancy has been generous with her time, experience and energy as a volunteer at J.N. “Ding” Darling Wildlife Refuge where she shares her love of the islands and their unique environment with visitors. She also volunteers with Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation as an extra hand in a variety of the foundations activities and as a Sea Turtle monitor on both Sanibel and Captiva.  She is a Shell Ambassador with the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum as well.

Nancy and her family have a long association with Sanibel and Captiva. They have visited the islands many times since the 1980’s, and now make their home full time here.
