Nancy McClellan moved to Burlington in 1991 to work at the Lintilhac Nurse Midwifery Service. Growing up in Buffalo, and relocating here from Minneapolis, Nancy understood snow and cold. She was not, however, familiar with the Green Mountains, but after accompanying her son on an end-to-end Long Trail hike she was hooked. Nancy has continued to hike many long-distance trails including the Appalachian Trail, the John Muir Trail, the Coast to Coast Trail in England, and the Haute Route. Nancy volunteers with GMC as a trail adopter, a Barnes Camp greeter and interpreter, a member of the Sections Working Group of the GMC Strategic Plan initiative, and vice president of the Burlington Section.
Since retirement, Nancy has been involved in international relief work in Greece and Haiti. She has also served as chair of the Vermont Chapter of the March of Dimes and continues to co-chair the Development Committee of the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts.
Nancy is honored to be considered for the board. Priorities for her include preservation and maintenance of the Long Trail for her children and grandchildren and supporting smaller club sections to increase membership and improve communications.
