Nancy Sawyer answers UU liFE’s Five Big Questions
UU liFE: Where were you raised, and how?
Nancy: I was raised on our family farm in central Illinois until I was eight. After that we moved around until I graduated from high school, since my dad was a salesperson for Asgrow Seed Company. My family still owns the farm in Illinois. I’m a corn and soybeans kind of girl.
How have you made your living?
Earlier in life as a secretary, but now as a registered dietitian. Why an RD? Because I love food!
What’s the most remarkable thing you’ve done?
Went skydiving. It was a tandem jump. Still can’t believe I jumped out of an airplane. Or rather, I was willingly pushed.
What’s the Next Big Thing for you?
Adjusting to being an empty nester, thinking about retirement, traveling. I’d love to design/build a modern home perfect for entertaining.
How do you serve UUFE and why?
I’ve served UUFE in a multitude of ways. Why? Because it’s my spiritual/moral home, it’s been a training ground for personal development, and it’s given me wonderful friendships and connections.
