Nancy Hastings

Nancy Hastings was first hired by Mt. Nittany as a receptionist. In 1993, after several years helping clients at the front desk, Nancy took the plunge into grooming. She’s happy to report that Mt. Nittany Grooming has continued to grow ever since. Nancy has lived in the State College area most of her life and now resides in Pleasant Gap with her son, Jason, who is her pride and joy! When she’s not in a room full of dog hair and running dryers, Nancy enjoys the peace and quiet of gardening and spending time with her family.
