After graduating, Nan trained with the US Women’s Ice Hockey team prior to the 1998 Nagano Olympics. She has coached athletes of all different ages and levels in a variety of sports, including high school soccer and lacrosse at Buckingham Browne & Nichols (BB&N) School in Cambridge, MA. Nan is certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, as well as through USA Weightlifting.
