On September 11, 2001, Nancy Sanchez (SSO) walked out of the World Trade Center two and a half minutes before the first plane hit. The experience changed her life, propelling her forward in a decision to leave her Technology Product Development VP position at JP Morgan Chase in Manhattan, to eventually become the DOE Stanford Site Office Manager.

Sanchez will share her story at the next Women's Interchange at SLAC seminar. She will discuss the strong desire that she has felt to serve the country since the 9-11 terrorist attacks. She will also share what it took to land the job as the SSO Manager and offer lessons of experience for managers and those interested in management. In addition, Sanchez will talk about her personal and business philosophies, how she transitioned from Telecom to Enterprise Networking in the Financial Sector, and challenges she has encountered as a woman in business and government. Most importantly, she says, she will discuss the future.

“If we do our jobs really well, we will not only deliver on the science, we will continue the proud tradition of the 20th century where we in the U.S. were the recognized leaders in the global science community,” says Sanchez.

The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center is managed by Stanford University for the US Department of Energy
