Q&A with Educator, Nancy Brasher

Posted by Claire Brandon on

What do you spend your money on?

During COVID? Allbirds, Free Fly, and Clorox Wipes.

Who is your dream wedding date?

Always my husband of 39 years :) 

What is your pet peeve?

Soul music turned to "low." Turn up that music and dance! It’ll help your heart and attitude.

What is something you romanticize doing, but probably never will? 

Renting a home in the Cotswolds and Tuscany for a month each and inviting my family and friends to take a week and join us.

Describe your worst haircut?

My own "style" with paper doll scissors at 3 years old right before a scheduled professional photograph. 

Have you ever been part of a photoshoot before?


React to this quote: “I know what women look good in. I don’t think the rules ever change.” - Michael Kors

Any kind of pearls…earrings, bracelets, strands, buttons. They are classic, simple and are created in the sea.

What is a sacrifice you're happy you made?

I recently retired from a wonderfully blessed 32 year educational career. Along the way, there were sacrifices of time with family and friends.

 What is something most people love that you don't understand?


If you were an animal, what would you be?

An eagle, my high school mascot. There is something graceful, majestic and powerful about watching an eagle soar. 

Do you have a favorite vintage garment?

Not a garment, but my grandmother’s gold engraved locket with her maiden initials is a vintage treasure.  I carry her name and have always had a deep affection for her and the manner in which she lived her life with perseverance, gratitude, strength, grace and kindness.

Scale of 1-10, how much anxiety do you have about answering these questions?


What is a concept our culture thinks is new but really isn't?

Farm to table meals, farmers’ markets, porch talks, and hikes.

Thank you, Nancy
