Nancy joined us on April 8, 1983 and made IACS her lifelong career. She started out as a part-time administrative assistant, but her responsibilities grew quickly. In October 1986, she was promoted to executive director.
At the time, IACS was operating as an affiliate of the American Counseling Association. Nancy played a lead role in negotiating its separation from ACA and setting up IACS as an independent organization in 1993. Through the years, she has worked with the board to meet challenges, respond to needs, and anticipate changes in the field. She has helped IACS implement advances, broaden outreach and most recently, complete a brand update and refresh. Nancy has also been instrumental in maintaining relationships with accredited centers and key associations, such as AUCCCD.
“When I first came to IACS, little did I know I’d be here for the next 39 years, but I truly loved working for this organization,” shares Nancy. “It’s been an honor and a pleasure to work with so many distinguished and genuinely dedicated individuals who truly care deeply about the mental health of our college students. I wish all of you and the IACS organization continuing success.”
For 39 years, Nancy has been a stalwart advocate for IACS, supporting our mission to lead the way in quality student mental health care. We appreciate her years of loyal commitment and wish her a fun-filled and relaxing retirement!
