Pre-Planning Specialists

Nancy Kowalski

Prearrangement Specialist

Nancy moved with her family to Colorado Springs from Tucson, Arizona because her father was active military in the US Air Force, she graduated from CSU with a BSBA.

For nine years Nancy worked for Service Corporation International, the parent company of five Colorado Springs Funeral homes that operate under the Dignity umbrella. She represented all five funeral locations and one cemetery as a family service counselor and preplanning arranger. Later, Nancy became a funeral arranger with Olinger at Crown Hill Mortuary and Cemetery in Wheatridge, CO.

After leaving SCI, Nancy used her degree in business and finance to become a Financial Advisor working with Edward Jones Investments and LPL Financial. She enjoyed helping families with financial decisions especially in the area of estate planning.

Her passion has been to assist in preplanning funeral/cremation arrangements. So when the opportunity presented itself in early 2014 to join The Springs Funeral Services as a Prearrangement Specialist her career came full circle.

Nancy lives in Manitou Springs where she enjoys outdoor activities, traveling, golfing, gardening and entertaining friends.

She is a member and on the board of the American Legion Auxiliary in Manitou Springs and also a life member of the VFW in Security, CO.

Jamie Enciso

Prearrangement Specialist


Jamie Enciso was born and raised by hard-working, Argentine immigrant parents in the high desert of California. As a first-generation American, she graduated from a distinguished high school and was accepted to continue her higher education at Humboldt State University. It was in the redwood forests of Northern California that Jamie continued to develop an intense love for nature and travel. While studying Latin American History in college, she began to research intensely on her own family’s history and the horrors of the Dirty War, (la Guerra Sucia), that took place in Argentina and many Latin American countries.


Jamie graduated from her alma-matter in 2013, and by that time had created two successful businesses: Electric Sheep Collection (retail) and JEM Photography (special-event photography). Both were discontinued when she moved to beautiful Colorado Springs in 2014 and began her next adventure of property investments. Her first home was purchased and rented out at the age of 25. Jamie has worked in and managed some of the most demanding and highly reputable kitchens in Colorado Springs, including Manitou Brewing Company and Skirted Heifer. She was even televised on local news for her burger flipping skills!
