Nancy D. Butler presented the 2021 'Woman of The Year' by The Southeastern Connecticut Women’s Network

Waterford, Nancy D. Butler, CFP®, CDFA®, CLTC®, has been presented the 2021 Woman of The Year award by The Southeastern Connecticut Women’s Network.
The Woman of the Year must be active in her community and within professional organizations. She also must express an interest in helping other women and men achieve professional status and public exposure through networking in the community.
Nancy has been a member of SECT Women’s Network for over twenty-five years, giving her time well under the radar simply because she does good to do good, not for the credit. She has offered her time and energy to lead in person and virtual luncheons, offering valuable information about personal finance, retirement planning and her fascinating work and experiences.
She has flexed and pivoted during COVID, taking her in-person international speaker, author and coaching businesses to the virtual world, and has succeeded. But not only has she continued to make money during these challenging times, she has also made and donated 1,500 face masks early on in the pandemic.
Nancy is the treasurer of Soroptimist CT Shoreline and the New England Hebrew Farmers of The Emanuel Society. She is a member of the SECT Chamber of Commerce and many other professional and service organizations. Through Soroptimist in 2018, 2019 and 2020, Nancy was appointed a delegate to the United Nations for the Commission on the Status of Women, working with thousands of women all over the world to make the world a better place. She was also invited to speak at a conference in Ghana.
Nancy is capable of saying no but genuinely and wholeheartedly says yes to helping her colleagues, her friends and her community. She is truly an amazing individual.
A note that perfectly describes this Woman of the Year from Susan Dombrowski reads, “Nancy Butler has been a beacon of light and hope this past year, one I didn't know I needed to see, and I sure didn't expect my comfort to come from a retired financial counselor. But once again, the Network proves we, as women, are way more than just what our business card says.
