Becker County Human Services director loves being 'closer to home'
Like so many young women, Nancy Nelson's first career was as a wife and mother.
"I married young, and started raising a family," she said. "It was never my intention to go into social work."
It was a college guidance counselor who suggested social services might be a career field Nelson would want to look into. She decided to heed the advice -- and never looked back.
On June 1, Nelson became the director of Becker County Human Services, replacing Matt Casey.
