Nancy is a West Roxbury resident who started her career path as a lawyer and served for five years as a Senior Investigator for the United States Department of Labor. After coming to the realization that she would find more personal fulfillment in the arts, Nancy embraced a new direction as the sole proprietor—and resident artist—of 3D and UP Pottery Studio in Jamaica Plain. This community-based experience helped position Nancy for her next career move: Associate Director of the Society of Arts and Crafts, where she built up her arts administration skills over seven years, including serving as Interim Executive Director. Prior to joining musiConnects, Nancy served as the Finance Manager at Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, Mass.
Along with this extensive experience in nonprofit management, Nancy is no stranger to music education and performance. As a drummer—in her spare time—Nancy can be found volunteering during the summer at Girls Rock Boston or performing with her band at Bella Luna in Jamaica Plain!
Nancy is excited to be leading an organization that “embraces the transformative power of music.”
Betsy founded musiConnects in 2007 to establish and support educational and artistic residencies using an innovative chamber music model. An accomplished violinist, Betsy performs regularly with the Boston Public Quartet, a resident quartet of musiConnects.
