Nancy Shaver, currently serves the people of St Augustine in her second term as Mayor. As Vice Chair of Resiliency Florida, she advocates for long-term planning and adaption strategies to address sea level rise. She received the 2017 Quality of Life Award from the Northeast Florida Regional Council for her work on sea level rise threats.

Nancy’s business experience is both national and global and includes leading a Fortune 500 marketing organization as well as leadership in three technology “start-ups”.  A graduate of Wellesley College, she has served on boards of businesses and non-profits, and provided management guidance to small businesses on a pro-bono basis.

After moving to St. Augustine in 2009 she became an active citizen, using her business skills to help her fellow citizens be better informed on City decisions.  Her work as a citizen activist to protect a city green space led her to her first run for political office, where a grass roots effort led to the defeat of a four term incumbent.

Nancy says that her best work has been her two children. Her son, Sean, whose work as an MD.PhD. has him leading global drug trials, lives in California with his family. Virginia is home to daughter Jenn, a marine biologist with NOAA, and her husband. And they all love to visit St. Augustine.
