She is an active member of the Advisory Committee of Clean Water Action. She has been a member of the Women Donors Network for 6 years and participated in the joint J Street/WDN trip to Israel and the occupied territories with 6 US Congresswomen. Nancy has an MPH from Columbia University and spent many years in NYC training public sector workers about their legal rights to protection from job hazards. Nancy grew up in Washington DC and as a teenager, got to know Yitzhak and Lea Rabin, who were close personal friends of her parents, when Rabin was Israel’s Ambassador to the US. Rabin’s assassination was a spark to Middle East peace activism. Nancy has two children and lives in Pittsburgh PA with her husband, Robert Schoen, and teenage daughter Zoe.
