Alumni Western Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

Nancy E. Wilson, BA'77

One of Nancy Wilson’s fondest memories from her time on Western Women’s Varsity Hockey team was when they moved to the new Thompson Arena where they had their very own dressing room.

“We really thought that we’d hit the big times,” says Wilson.

“I had some wonderful role models when I was at Western,” adds Wilson. “The most influential was head coach Dr. Bill L’Heureaux. He not only taught me the game of hockey but the finer points of being a leader and being a responsible team player.”

Wilson took her skills as a team player and served with the RCMP for 25 years until her retirement in 2005. Today, she is the head coach for the University of British Columbia’s Women’s Hockey team, while also acting as provincial coach for BC Hockey and President and owner of a company called CNJ Lighting Solutions.

She notes she is very proud of her contribution to growing the women’s game in Canada at every level. A strong example of this is 19 years ago she launched the Centre Ice Female Hockey School. The school concentrates on teaching the skills of hockey with a heavy emphasis on life skills and healthy living.
