Meet Nancy O’Neill, Director of Events & Leadership Hamilton at the Greater Hamilton Chamber of Commerce, a woman of many interests and experiences. She's kissed the Blarney Stone, studied Art History in college, and even flew all the way to Las Vegas just to see Barry Manilow perform - and she'll tell you, it was absolutely amazing. When she's not jet-setting across the country for concerts, you can find Nancy curled up on the couch with her favorite TV show, the Great British Baking Show. With a life full of adventure and a passion for the arts, Nancy is a force to be reckoned with.
