Nash began the 2023-24 academic year as the assistant coach for the men's team at the University of Denver, while completing her professional playing career. She designed and implemented backs-specific training sessions, worked with centers on improving their open field defensive play and running lines in attack, and implemented full-team attacking structure with the support of the head coach.

She previously served as the head coach of the Rugby Advantage club at the Grenada Rugby World 7s and as the head coach of the Rocky Mountain Magic club. Nash also worked as an assistant coach with the women's team at Northeastern University from 2017 through '19.

Nash graduated from Boston University with a bachelor of science degree in athletic training in 2014. There, she captained the women's rugby club as a senior while playing throughout her undergraduate career.

Her subsequent playing career includes spending 2020 through 2023 with the WPL's reigning champion Colorado Gray Wolves, and also as a champion with the WPL's Glendale Merlins in 2019.
