Nancy has deferred her acceptance to Harvard Law School to head across the pond and study in the U.K. as a 2017 Marshall Scholar. She is currently completing an MSc in International Development with a focus on poverty and inequality at the University of Birmingham and her second year course is an MSc in Global Governance and Diplomacy at the University of Oxford. Nancy previously attended the University of Texas at Dallas as a McDermott Scholar, where she majored in Political Science. In undergrad, she conducted research on poverty policies and homelessness in nine different countries. She also published a book through Missouri State University in 2016 entitled 'Throwaway Youth: Stories of Springfield's Homeless Teens', which shares the life stories of homeless teenagers from her hometown of Springfield, Missouri.
Nancy enjoys working with students of all ages and abilities and has worked with students throughout the last four years, volunteering in the freshman mentoring program and serving as a 'Big' in the McDermott Scholars program. She can help with test prep, application editing, and subjects including Law, Government, and Politics. As a champion high school debater and top national Moot Court competitor in college, she also specializes in helping students in speech/rhetoric, debate, and public speaking.
Outside of her studies, Nancy plays ice hockey and is attempting to learn the British art of making the perfect cup of tea.
