Hope for Liver Cancer Patients in Egypt

Nancy is a native of Rochester, Minnesota. After high school, she graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN with a degree in nursing in 1972. She worked at Hennepin County Medical Center (the OLD structure) for 4 years and then moved back to Rochester where her 2 children were born. A few years later, she moved to Maryland and subsequently to Florida where she spent most of her professional career. She obtained her Masters in Nursing at the University of Florida and worked in cardiology until she moved back to Minnesota in 2011. Her last job was at the University of Minnesota Physicians Heart at Southdale and she retired in 2015.

Along the way she was a professional volunteer – as many Rotarians are – in church and school. At the urging of an old college friend, she joined Minnetonka Rotary in 2014. She was very active in that wonderful group and became club president in 2018. She has served on many Rotary committees including the Global Grant Committee where she continues to participate in grant reviews.

Travels with Rotary include two trips to Honduras for water projects and one trip to India with a group of Rotarians from around the US. While in India she helped build a check dam and vaccinated children against polio. She recently traveled to Viet Nam with 20 Rotarians and will travel to Egypt in early 2024 with some of her new friends in the Global Travelers Rotary Club.

She joined the Global Travelers Rotary Club in July 2022 and is now Foundation Chair. She became chair of the Egypt project last fall and is busy writing the grant and working with her committee to obtain funding from collaborating Rotary Clubs in District 5950 and beyond.

Non-Rotary projects include hiking every state park in Minnesota (finally completed) and volunteering weekly with Minnesota Literacy Council to help immigrants learn English.
