Nanci exemplifies the definition of servant leader, always letting those around her benefit from the extraordinary work that she accomplishes herself and encourages others to achieve. Nanci is respected as an expert in leadership and inter professional collaboration within the UW School of Pharmacy, the state, and nationally. Nanci’s reputation as an exemplary expert in these fields preceded her. Nanci is unfailingly supportive of any student or practitioner.

Nanci’s drive to advance the pharmacy profession through innovation and collaboration lives on in the daily lives of so many that she has mentored.
