About Nancy Pierson
Nancy is a native Michigander, whose hometown values resonate with the residents of the newly created 23rd District. A graduate of Michigan public schools, Nancy was first called to public service as a Sheriff's Deputy. Nancy spent 25 years working for the Sheriff’s office, working in the prison system at some of the toughest prisons in Michigan. Nancy’s story of public service doesn’t end there. After decades of service, she changed careers and became a registered nurse. She discovered the Nature Coast in her travels and fell in love with its natural beauty before relocating here. Her service as a nurse has brought her to the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. On that terrible afternoon of January 6, 2021, she heard the radio cries from officers on duty at the Capitol as the line of law enforcement officers fell and seditionists stormed the Capitol Building. In that moment, she felt called to begin another path of service to our community. Her declaration of candidacy for Florida House was the first step on that new path.
