As a girl growing up in rural southern Ontario, Nancy would constantly re-arrange her bedroom depending on how she wanted the space to feel. That was the spark that became her future. In high school, she was enrolled in Art class every year, but it wasn’t until grade 11 that she decided she was interested in Architecture and the Interior Design profession but did not have any drafting credits. She succeeded at drafting in grade 11 and in grade 12, she received the 2nd place Drafting award while her brother received 1st place.
After attaining her Interior Design Diploma from Durham College, she married her college sweetheart, Jeff. They just celebrated their 30th anniversary.
