At the Northwest Film Festival Nancy was named Best Actress for her work in the independent film Organ Music, and she garnered rave reviews, as well as a Leo nomination, for her hilarious portrayal of Harriet in the award-winning feature film The Delicate Art of Parking. She has appeared onstage in numerous roles, winning a BC Drama Fest Award for Best Supporting Actress in the play Standing On My Knees, as well as being a member of the winning team at the International Improv Tournament, with her team taking the championship three times. Some of her television credits include the recurring role of Gertrude on Fox-TV's Los Luchadores, as well as roles on The Addams Family, Beggars and Choosers, Dead Like Me, and Robson Arms.
She is probably best known however, as one of the lead characters in Canada's top-rated sitcom Corner Gas, where she played the book-smart but socially stunted Wanda Dollard. Aside from earning her and her cast mates a Gemini Award for Best Ensemble Performance, individually Nancy's work as Wanda has been nominated for three Canadian Comedy Awards and six Leo Awards, earning her a win in the category Best Performance by an Actress in a Comedy. It's little wonder that Nancy was recently put on MORE Magazine's list of "Most Compelling Women."
