Nancy Lucero

Center Director, Academy Instructor


I have one daughter, three grandchildren and two little kids named Ben and Chi-Chen.

My vocational background is in Human Resources, Marketing/Sales, Tradeshows and Event Planning and Administration.

I discovered and began my tai chi journey in 1996 and began studying with Master Yang in 2000. I teach at Shoreline Community College, Sammamish Valley Grange and at various senior centers in Bothell, Mill Creek and Snohomish.

When the Redmond school opened, late 2001, I was appointed Office Manager by Master Yang and Fang Laoshi. Soon thereafter, I became Master Yang’s Assistant in the International Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan Association.

I have organized the Redmond School's open houses, ranking events and practices, demonstration teams and performances, and anniversary celebrations. I feel extremely fortunate to have Master Yang and Fang Laoshi as my guiding lights through my exploration and understanding of their family art form.
