Faculty and Staff
Nancy Jeffcoat, Department Secretary
Nancy Jeffcoat was born in the Panama Canal Zone where she lived for 21 years. After receiving her degree from the Canal Zone College, she married the late Lt. Col. Marvin Jeffcoat and traveled throughout the United States to various military installations. She was very active in the POW/MIA organization at Ft. Benning, GA and New Orleans, LA.
In the 1970's, she moved to Florida where she took a position at a large engineering firm as their office manager and the President's personal assistant. After 14 years, she decided to retire and venture out on her own as a restaurant owner. Her love of people and passion for cooking became the driving force in the success of this 10 years venture.
In 2007, she joined the staff of the Physician Assistant Department where her caring spirit still carries through.
Besides cooking, she is an avid world traveler and has a passion for the arts, gardening and world history.
