About Nancy

When asked if I am from Chatham, I usually say that my husband and I moved to Chatham 28 years ago for 2 years. We never planned to stay. At that time, I was pregnant with our oldest daughter and we moved into a house that was way too big for our soon-to-be family of three. In short order, we were a foursome, with the addition of another little girl. A couple years later, we gifted the sisters a brother. And soon enough that house didn’t seem so big and Chatham had become our home. Our family has been fortunate to grow and work and learn and play in Chatham-Kent.
I have been a pharmacist for over 30 years, and have spent the last decade+ of my career in healthcare leadership. As rewarding as working in healthcare can be, it can be very demanding and most days, it is all-consuming. I have always been grateful to enjoy a wonderful home life balanced with a busy work life. Several years ago, though, I was looking for something more. More joy. And what is more joyful than a wedding? So when the idea of becoming a wedding officiant came to me, it stuck. Fast forward a few years and here I am!

My passion for equity and inclusivity…

As I began my officiant journey, I identified very early on that if I was going to do this, I wanted to marry all couples. Weddings are intended to celebrate the commitment of two people who love one another, committing to share their lives together.

If two people love one another – we must celebrate! It was non-negotiable for me that I align myself with an organization who shared my core values of inclusivity, respect for all, fairness and integrity. As we do in Chatham-Kent, #hatehasnohomehere.
