Nancy Johnston MAES, EcD, C.EcD, Director of Strategic Initiatives
I am an explorer who loves adventure. Not one to shy away from a challenge I always push my limits. Whether its summiting Mount Washington (unguided) or looking for the smallest community in Canada to work with, I am always on the lookout for my next adventure. As Senior Economic Development Consultant this is a good thing because I enjoy exploring the communities that I work in, to find what makes the community special – what makes it unique.
My interest in economic development was piqued when I was a student working at the City of Ottawa. The experience I had with the economic development office and the international project with the Hague, helped determine the direction of my career. When I’m not consulting with clients and writing strategies, I am spending time outdoors, supporting the local arts and music scene, or hanging out with friends and family.
