Cox has done and seen it all. Tough but compassionate gun-toting court officer, mom to two daughters, world traveler, chorale singer, expert seamstress, octogenarian zip-liner, integration trailblazer, theater usher in her spare time, longest serving AARP volunteer, niece to one of Detroit’s most celebrated figures... and that only touches on a handful of the highlights.

AARP Community Ambassador Nancy Crespo moved to Manassas, Virginia, three years ago after a varied career as a biology researcher, science teacher, and high school counselor and administrator. In November 2019 she was one of three volunteers to receive AARP Virginia’s President’s Award for Community Service, which recognized the recipients’ significant contributions to the work of AARP Virginia over the past year. I spoke with Nancy at The Swiss Bakery in Springfield, Virginia. Our conversation has been edited for length.
