Director of Human Resources
Jacqueline has more 20 years of experience as an HR leader. She possesses an amazing breadth of experience in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. Her mastery of HR skills evolved while working at Fortune 100 corporations and her own HR consulting firm. She previously worked with 501 Commons as a (now former) member of the Executive Service Corps.
Jacqueline believes in pursuing opportunities the moments when passion and purpose cross paths. This belief has given her incredible opportunities to build an exceptional career and she is committed to paying it forward.
Fun Fact: Although not an actor, Jacqueline’s work has appeared on three major television shows and she often wonders if she missed her calling.
Nancy believes in the power of community organizations to create connections between people, provide opportunities to celebrate creativity and cultural diversity, and promote health and justice in our communities. She is relentlessly optimistic about the mission of 501 Commons. In addition to her executive director role, Nancy is the senior manager supporting Community Engagement, including Washington Gives, Information and Referral Services, and the Executive Service Corps. She is also responsible for fundraising, communications and marketing and is the lead with our foundation partners.
Before becoming executive director of 501 Commons, she was focused on her passion for expanding healthcare access.

- Nancy joined the policy staff for the Health Services Commission, where she developed the laws governing health care quality, employers, agents/brokers, and health plans
- She became the Director of Marketing for the Basic Health Plan, which provided health insurance on a sliding fee scale

Nancy became the executive director of 501 Commons in 2002 after serving as an Executive Service Corps member. During the early years of her tenure, Nancy managed all the management consulting projects, working with 400+ community-based nonprofits, including many culturally and community-specific organizations.
She is married and has two children. Nancy met her husband Frank while organizing the 50-organizations strong Survival Services Coalition. The coalition secured the first direct city funding for food banks, shelters, and health clinics. The city now spends nearly $175 million in general funds on human services.
She studied social psychology at the University of Texas and received a master's from the Evans School at the University of Washington, where she was an affiliate faculty member teaching courses on management and leadership of nonprofit organizations.
Fun Fact: When Nancy worked for Pacific Medical, she wrote the bond proposal that resulted in the addition to Pacific Tower that includes the beautiful Panoramic Center, where 501 Commons, our partners in the building, and many nonprofits enjoy the best view in the city!
Born in Lewiston, Idaho, Eileen has always felt the northwest to be home, even though she is Cajun by heritage. Seattle has a particular pull; there is beauty everywhere.
Graduating cum laude in 1992 from Washington State University, Eileen put her new accounting degree to use in the private sector, progressively accumulating responsibility in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors. She spent seven years as a Financial Manager in the nonprofit world, working in areas such as mental health counseling, Habitat for Humanity, a credit union, and economic development organizations.
Having an affinity for taxation, Eileen received a Master’s in Taxation from Golden Gate University and proceeded to become an enrolled agent.
Eileen worked in the for-profit world the last few years, after attempting an early retirement that didn’t stick. Most recently, the construction field held her attention, but coming back to nonprofits is particularly gratifying. Working with a variety of clients, solving problems, and delivering beyond expectations are all goals put to better use while serving others.
Coming back to Seattle after several years’ absence for a stay in the state of her family’s long history – Louisiana – Eileen swore she would have a Seattle address this time (having lived in Bellevue before). Luckily, Eileen found a lovely place close to what matters - opera, concerts, Seattle events; and is lucky to live within walking distance to many of these venues.
Fun Fact: Eileen was once the lead singer in a rock band in Everett during the early 80s.
