She recently appeared onstage in the DC Premiere of Tom Stoppard’s The Hard Problem at Studio Theatre.

Nancy is a recent graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and the Maggie Flanigan Studio two-year acting program.

Her writing online has earned her a SXSW Interactive Award nomination and mention in the New York Times. She has previously workshopped scripts at the Asian American Film Lab and is currently working on a feature-length screenplay.

As a supporter of independent film, Nancy has also served two years on the Tribeca Film Festival Preselection Committee and worked as the Industry Registration Coordinator for the IFP Project Forum
