Jan Nash

June 2023



Raised in Wheaton, Ill., Jan Nash began her career as an investment banker on Wall Street. Later, she received an MBA from Stanford and then became a marketing executive, a strategic planner and a development executive.


None of these careers involved actual writing, but they gave Nash much fodder for the stories she has told in hundreds of episodes of television, including NCIS: NEW ORLEANS and WITHOUT A TRACE, both on the Network, “Ellen,” “Rizzoli & Isles” and “Black Lightning.” In addition, she is the author of a young adult novel, River of Dreams, which also has nothing to do with investment banking, strategic planning or development.


When she isn’t in the writers’ room, Nash enjoys reading, sports and hanging out with her family. She can be followed on Twitter @jannash100.
