Nelly grew up in Bellevue and ended up at the clinic by chance and decided to try something that involved her love for animals. She went to Bellevue West high school and Iowa Western Community college. After finding out culinary school wasn’t for her she realized she was more of a customer care person. She has a dog named Noel and she is a border collie mix. In her free time she likes to watch movies, read books, or playing D&D with her friends.
