Nancy Deel began working at the Alaska SeaLife Center in 2011, first as a volunteer and then in various marketing and graphic design roles.  In September of 2017, Nancy joined the Senior Management Team as the Senior Marketing and Communications Manager.  She is originally from Hopkinsville, Kentucky and some say she has “Kentucky Twang” when she talks. Nancy earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design from Austin Peay State University and loves to be creative. She enjoys art and once owned and renovated an art gallery in Kentucky with her husband.   

When asked what she likes best about working for the Alaska SeaLife Center, Nancy says "I love and appreciate the friends I've made here and the opportunities I've been given."  She loves animals and feels lucky to be surrounded by so many here at the Alaska SeaLife Center.  Nancy lives in Seward with her husband Ricky, son Ozzy, dog Sammy (aka "Black Shadow"), and cat Bicuit (aka "Whiskey Biscuit").
