Nancy Adams is grateful to have had the opportunity to meet and know so many wonderful and interesting people over the many decades of her career.
The focus of each workplace, from New Mexico to California to Washington, has been on the health and well-being of each individual woman, man, or child, being served. The Breast, Cervical, and Colon Health Program (BCCHP) arrived in Clallam County in 2001 at the Family Planning Clinic and Nancy was fortunate to become involved with the program at that time.
She has found coordinating this program to be a deeply meaningful experience. Nancy has lived in Port Angeles for a total of 22 years and enjoys spending free time outdoors, exploring all of the Peninsula's awe-inspiring natural beauty.
