Nancy is one of the founding partners of Davidson Houle Allen LLP.

Her practice includes general corporate advice to condominium corporations, financing and secured transactions, construction law, building deficiency litigation, and proceedings involving disputes between condominium corporations and residents.

Nancy has published articles in both the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (ACMO) and CondoBusiness Magazine. She is also a frequent guest lecturer at Canadian Condominium Institute (CCI) Seminars (local and National), the Annual Directors Course, the Kingston Area Condominium Association Seminars, and the Law Society of Upper Canada continuing legal education sessions.  Nancy has also been a guest on various local radio and television shows including Ottawa Morning on CBC Radio and CBC Television.

Nancy enjoys connecting with people, and finding ways to make a genuine difference to the lives of individuals, groups, and communities. One of her key strengths is being able to run smooth and effective meetings, leading the way to a practical resolution. Part of this is due to her sense of humour and ability to lighten the mood, even when a tough message needs to be delivered.

Growing up in a military family, Nancy spent her formative years living overseas, and now loves travelling to different parts of the world. Her labour of love is her country getaway, her home near the Gatineau Hills. Consequently, Nancy and her family spend as much time as possible outdoors: skiing in winter, and golfing and swimming in the summer. Music is also a big part of her family life, and Nancy sings and plays piano.
