Although she has a degree in psychology and a master’s in social work, she purchased Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in 1983 and set about creating one of Canada’s premier visitor attractions. Since then, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park has expanded its offerings with award-winning experiences including Treetops Adventure, Canyon Lights, and Cliffwalk. Today, over a million visitors walk the bridge annually.
As her business grew and expanded into other provinces, her involvement in tourism also grew. She is a former board member of the Tourism Association of Canada and past chair of Destination Vancouver. She has worked with many industry associations in addition to helping lead the Convention Center Task Force that was instrumental in acquiring the 2010 Olympics. Nancy was inducted into Canada’s Tourism Hall of Fame in 2007 and received the Tourism Industry Association of Canada’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018.
