Nancy and her husband John have raised their children over three decades in the West Deptford Township School District. Much has changed over those years, including advancements in technology. Students have gone from learning exclusively with textbooks to integrating laptops into the classrooms. One thing that has not changed is Nancy's dedication to instilling the love of learning in her children. The West Deptford Township School District is second to none, and the schools have provided an important educational foundation for her children: Dr. Ryan Barna - WDHS Class of 1998 - Pharmacist; Melissa Barna Jennings - WDHS Class of 2003 - Chemist; and Tyler Barna - WDHS Class of 2017 - Governer's School in the Sciences & Boys' State Scholar.
Nancy's leadership roles as a Trustee of the West Deptford Free Public Library and as the President of the GFWC Woman's Club of West Deptford have provided her with over ten years of experience in serving the community while working as a Board member.
Keeping the focus on the students is of utmost importance to Nancy. Her volunteer service with the Greater Woodbury Cooperative Ministries Food Pantry, as well as leaderhsip roles with Boy Scout Troop 9, Girl Scouts and Cub Scout Pack 296 have given her great opportunities to listen to what is important to the families in West Deptford.
Nancy received her paralegal degree from Gloucester County College and majored in political science with a minor in sociology and pre-law at Rutgers-Camden. She has over 30 years of experience as a Paralegal and has worked as assistant to the Compotroller of the bank now known as Wells Fargo.
