Nancy has been reporting for nearly 20 years, covering crime since 1997, starting at the former RDTV in Red Deer before moving to Global Calgary.
Nancy has a passion for telling stories others might be reluctant to tell. She has interviewed criminals, sat down with Hells Angels members for a Global exclusive, and can frequently be seen chasing after criminals on the street. She is best known for holding criminals accountable, and can often be seen knocking on a criminal’s door to ask them questions the victim’s can’t ask. She takes pride in giving a voice to people who may not otherwise be heard.
Nancy has covered some of the most high-profile crime cases in Alberta’s history, including the mass murder of five young students in Brentwood. Nancy was the first reporter on the scene of the Garland acreage, after the disappearance of five-year-old Nathan O’Brien and his grandparents, Alvin and Kathy Liknes.
Nancy has a blog and crime page on Facebook that’s become a forum for victims to meet and an online community where they can discuss issues. Many of the original members on the page have lost children, parents, or friends to murder, impaired driving or other unspeakable tragedies. Many are victims of sexual assault or their children have been abused. Some never find justice, or must continue to live with missing loved ones. This page is a place where they can feel safe and share their stories, and has become an extended family for the members.
When Nancy isn’t working, she loves to be outside camping, hiking, or snowboarding. She loves to travel—especially when it involves the ocean and a nice beach.
