Even though Nancy Anderson lived most of her life about an hour’s drive from Lake Tahoe in Northern California, she didn’t ski often and never made it past “beginner” (but always wanted to). After turning 50 last year, Nancy decided it was now or never. Ironically, she and her husband have owned a condo in Park City since 2004 and vacationed here every summer, but they always rented it in the winter. As a financial planner, Nancy’s first impulse was always “rent it!” With their youngest finishing college, Nancy and her husband looked at each other and said, “Let’s move to Park City” and off they went.
Moving was a viable option since Nancy is a Certified Financial Planner ™ Professional who works in the growing field of workplace financial education and has the luxury of being able to work from anywhere near a major airport. She can be seen in the early morning hours headed to the Salt Lake City airport to commute to Los Angeles a couple days a week. The other days, she works from her home office working on special projects and writing on personal finance including contributing to a regular column on Forbes.com. Her work has been syndicated on Yahoo! Finance, The Wall Street Journal Blog, MSN Money, and the Huffington Post.
Nancy is excited about learning to ski and eventually being able to ski the whole mountain. Is there powder in her future? She hopes so. She and her husband love exploring Park City especially the outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, kayaking, and throwing the ball (over and over again) to Ginger, their yellow Lab.
