I am married to my best friend, Casey Nelson, and we have three amazing children: Collin, Brady, and Alyssa. I grew up in Beloit, WI and graduated from Beloit College with a double major in Sociology and German. I have a passion for 4-H and was active with it my whole childhood. I am passionate about helping others, whether it be by listening to them, learning about them, or helping them grow. If I'm not having fun with my team at the agency, then I'm likely having fun somewhere with my family because life is short and we should never take it for granted.
