Nancy is often compared to Jean Smart and Laura Linney, combining Smart’s quick-witted intelligence and wry sense of humor with Linney’s laser-focused authenticity. She projects strength and toughness undercut with vulnerability and maternal warmth.
She has studied at the Carol Hickey Acting Studio in Austin since 2018 and completed its conservatory program in 2019. She joined the school’s teaching staff in 2022. She continues honing her craft in ongoing scene study classes, various industry workshops, and voice lessons.
