She also worked at M&R Strategic Services, creating local and statewide campaigns involving legislative strategy, grassroots organizing, and media outreach.

Nancy will report to the President of the Greenwich Library Board of Trustees.  Greenwich Library is supported by a partnership between the Town and individual, corporate and foundation donors.
