Director at Large

Nancy Ringman

Nancy has been a member of the Junior League of Orange County for over 25 years and has served as President, Community Director, Communications Director, SPAC, Primetime Literacy Chair, Good Beginnings Conference Chair, and Public Affairs Chair.  In her League career, Nancy served as Community Director during the establishment of the Family Campus for the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of Garden Grove and Capo Valley, and has been active in the Blue Ribbon Campaign as well as the Garden of Hope at the Santa Ana Zoo.  As the Senior SPAC delegate, she earned the League’s annual Leadership Award.  One of her most impactful placements was being a Provisional Intern on the Project Development Committee when the League decided to develop the volunteer organization at C.A.S.T. (Child Abuse Services Team), which led to her serving on the inaugural committee of C.A.S.T. volunteers. Those experiences have made her a strong and committed advocate for abused and neglected children.

Nancy was born and raised in the Glendale/La Canada area, and received her Bachelor’s degree from the Unversity of California, Irvine.  She has been an enthusiastic Orange County resident ever since.  She and her husband of 26 years, Tom, live in Costa Mesa and have one son, Erik, who recently graduated from The Ohio State Unversity.

Nancy is the long-time marketing director for Western Exterminator Company.  She has served on the Board of Directors of the Raise Foundation (formerly Prevent Child Abuse Orange County), and served as the Troop Committee Chair for Boy Scout Troop 911 in Huntington Beach for many years.  She spends her free time, when there is some, enjoying sailing, gardening, traveling, and reading for sheer pleasure.  She’s an avid movie buff, college football fan, and loves to entertain dear friends.
