Coach Nalley graduated from Oakland City University in 2005 with a Bachelor's degree in Social Sciences. She was a member of the Lady Oaks cross country team from 2001 to 2005. After her undergraduate work, she attended the University of Southern Indiana, graduating with a Master's degree in Social Work. Her most recent job was coaching track and field at Tecumseh Middle School.

The Oakland City cross country program is looking to build on a solid foundation in the near future. "Your training partners are key to your success, and friendships based on your runs together are strong." (Bill Rodgers) This mindset is something Coach Nalley believes will help transform the program into a strong force in years to come. "A lot of people run to see who's the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts." (Steve Roland Prefontain)

For the upcoming 2011 season, Coach Nalley has set goals of "rebuilding the program by recruiting dynamite runners who not only have the athletic talent necessary to construct a solid cross country program, but also have the passion and desire required to rekindle the running spirit at Oakland City University." In order to build the program to this type of level she is looking to "recruit runners and establish a competitive team that works hard, competes hard, and has fun doing it."
