Nancy Shanks started Summit Public Relations in 2016, after retiring from the Colorado Department of Transportation as its public relations manager for the Western Slope. A graduate of Durango High School, she attended Fort Lewis College, and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from CU-Boulder in Communications and Journalism.
Nancy and her husband, Robert, moved from Denver back to Durango in 2002 to raise their daughters around skiing, hiking and biking. Their oldest, Mallory, is a Stillwater alum and recent graduate of Northern Arizona University (with a full-tuition scholarship – music skills CAN pay for college!) Their youngest, Raeden, is also musical, playing the guitar and ukulele at college, a creative break from work and political science studies.
