During my first year at PARTNERS+simons, Nancy wasn’t just my manager and creative director — she was also my mentor and friend. Nancy has a great ability to mentor and lead others. Even when she is under pressure, she is willing to stop whatever she is working on to answer questions with intelligent and thoughtful answers. Not only is she a great teacher, but she is also a creative powerhouse. She is consistently successful at pushing and challenging the creative work to be more strategic. Nancy helped me to become a stronger art director, and I believe that she would be a great addition and a true asset to any team.
