Nancy joined the Our Redeemer’s staff in the spring of 2015, although she and her husband Paul have been active members since the late 1980s. They were married at Our Redeemer’s by Pastor Maynard Atik January 4, 1997. Before being employed as the Office Assistant at Our Redeemer’s, Nancy was a legal secretary working in downtown Seattle for almost 40 years, including 10 years working in a small law firm with Paul Wallstrom.
Nancy attended West Side Presbyterian Church as a child growing up in West Seattle (a real Seattle native). Since becoming members at Our Redeemer’s, she and Paul taught Sunday School when their four children were growing up in the 1990s, and have been active in Social Justice issues including hunger and homelessness (Thanksgiving dinners, Ballard Sunday Dinners), Road2Housing, LGBT advocacy, Faith Action Network and other social causes. They now enjoy watching their 4 grandsons grow!
She loves working with the staff and members of Our Redeemer’s, and feels blessed to be part of an inclusive, devoted, caring, spiritual community that accepts challenges, takes risks and grows.
