After a long and rewarding career as a Chicago-area community banker, Nancy retired from MB Financial Bank in 2014. Always an active volunteer and leader in local, charitable, and professional organizations, since retiring she stepped up her not-for-profit activities and has focused on educational institutions and organizations that help educate women and girls.

She recently completed a 6-year term as Chair of the Corporate Board of Resurrection College Prep High School (her alma mater), she is a past president and current board member of the Mundelein College Alumnae Board, and she serves on the National Alumni Advisory Board of Loyola University Chicago, representing Mundelein alumnae.

Nancy began her college career in 1967 as a Fine Arts major at Mundelein, but left school in 1969 to work full-time. After several years, she returned to school and earned a BA in Business from Mundelein’s Weekend College in 1978. Later, she earned an MBA in Management (cum laude) from Lake Forest Graduate School of Management (1989). She lives in Chicago, and is pleased to finally have time to pursue her many hobbies.
