She was a steadfast confidant and dear friend to Nina, a supportive sister to Robert and Vicki, and a beloved member of her extended family.
Nancy’s impact at The Entrepreneurs Academy was nothing short of monumental. Her innate passion for helping small businesses and social enterprises thrive made her an esteemed and revered figure in our community. Nancy’s boundless generosity, empathy, and unwavering commitment to making a difference were evident in every project she undertook and every relationship she built.
As an integral part of our senior management team, Nancy’s exceptional passion, leadership, and enormous heart made her irreplaceable. Her relentless pursuit of meaningful impact and steadfast integrity earned her the immense respect and admiration of colleagues, clients, and the countless small businesses and social enterprises she tirelessly advocated for. We will forever treasure Nancy’s friendship and the profound influence she had on our organisation and its mission.
The outpouring of love and condolences from friends, family, and colleagues has deeply moved our team, and it is a testament to the remarkable impact Nancy had on everyone she encountered. She was an unwavering source of inspiration and a guiding light, leaving behind a legacy that will continue to resonate in the lives of those she touched.
