Executive experience and international sensibilities distinguish Woodbridge Board of Education candidate Nancy Yao Maasbach, who has lived in town since 1999. With a background that includes high finance, non-profit management, creative programming, and even children’s theater, Nancy has talents to offer that have already been recognized on the Board.
After stepping up last year to fill a vacancy, Nancy now seeks a full term of her own, and with good reason. She and her husband Steven are the parents of two Beecher Road School students, a third grader and a fourth grader. Nancy is eager to continue her work to maintain the school’s exceptional learning environment and top ranking among the very best schools in Connecticut.
Nancy is currently the president of the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA), and has past experience as the Executive Director of the Yale-China Association, Managing Director for Corporate Programs at the Council on Foreign Relations, and Vice President and Director for Policy Research, Global Markets Institute at Goldman Sachs & Co.
Nancy earned an AB in Diplomacy and World Affairs from Occidental College and an MBA in Finance from the Yale School of Management. She is a past chair of the Women & Girls Fund at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and she is currently on the board of directors of New Haven’s International Festival of Arts and Ideas.
Nancy says, “Woodbridge has great hidden value. I am committed to a strong and dynamic town community; one that will allow us to realize that value.”
