Hi I'm Nancy Ann Coon

I'm an insurance agent specializing in the senior market in Arizona and Utah. I'm from Salt Lake City, UT. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Salt Lake City and graduated from the University of Utah in 1980 with degrees in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. Upon graduation, I worked as a process engineer for Chevron at their Richmond, CA refinery for two of years. Then I traveled in Europe for 8 months as a backpacker using student Eurail passes. Next I served a Mormon mission to Argentina. After 3 years out of the workplace, I hired on with IBM as a manufacturing engineer in their East Fishkill, NY semiconductor manufacturing facility. After two years, I moved to Seattle, WA and was a systems engineer and sales representative for IBM. After 7 years I transferred again to Tucson, AZ and spent the next 15 years in worldwide sales and marketing assignments for IBM's storage division. Between my own travels and business travel, I have seen much of the United States and indeed much of the world. I left IBM in 2008. In 2009 I became a licensed health and life insurance agent in Arizona. I now have my own business helping seniors prepare for the most common and costly expenses in retirement through insurance for healthcare and retirement savings. I have clients in 10 states, predominantly AZ and UT. In recent years, I have transformed my health for the better through applying energetic and integrative medicine principles to chronic health conditions. I've gone from being seriously ill and heavily medicated to living a healthy, productive life again. This transformation parallels my career change.

Why I am a Mormon

I am at least a 4th generation Mormon. My ancestors were among the early converts in the British Isles. They migrated to the United States and then made the western migration with the saints from Nauvoo, IL into the Great Salt Lake Valley before the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869. Certainly I have a rich pioneer heritage. However, there have been times in my life when the church was not a part of my life. Through the years, I have found that its teachings are true, that I am strengthened by its culture, and that it gives me a firm anchor. Wherever I am in the world, I know I can find a community of Latter Day Saints on Sunday where the lessons being taught from a worldwide curriculum will help me feel at home. I know that adherence to the principles of the gospel and living by the Light of Christ can sustain me and help me grow not only spiritually, but in every aspect of my life far more rapidly and effectively than could be accomplished in any other way.

How I live my faith

My Dad was a professional violinist. I have been blessed to learn piano and violin. I love to play the piano for the children during their Sunday lesson time. I love to play for the baptisms for the 8 yr-olds every month. The kids are so excited to officially join the church and receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost.
