Nancy Edwards joined the Friends Board in July 2013. She retired in April 2011 from Aptium Oncology where she was Director of Information Technology responsible for the implementation of all Financial Systems for 13 years. Prior to her work with Aptium Oncology, Nancy spent 17 years as Director of Business Services at various hospital systems.
Key among the many goals she established for her retirement is giving back to the community she loves. Friends of Ballona Wetlands is a natural fit as Nancy and her husband John have a home overlooking the Ballona Wetlands. They have long understood the need to protect and restore this natural wonder. Creating awareness for the conservation and restoration of our natural resources, waterways and wildlife is an important mission. Joining the Friends provides a great opportunity to promote this important cause and become a steward of the Wetlands
Nancy is also a Trustee on the Board of the Natural History Museum and a Board Member of the Westchester Mental Health Guild.
Nancy and her husband John have lived in the El Segundo and Playa Del Rey area for 30 years. She keeps her binoculars trained on the wetlands and scours them daily to see what friends may be flying about. Other interests include cooking, tasting and collecting wine, and travel to locations near and far.
