Dr. Nelson graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. She then relocated to Michigan where she practiced for several years before moving to the Salem area with her husband and daughter in 2012. Dr. Nelson loves this are because it reminds her a lot of East Tennessee, where she grew up! In her downtime, Dr. Nelson spends time with family, friends, and her hound dog named Julip, she bakes, reads, and is enjoying becoming an avid gardener. She enjoys her time at our clinic and getting to know patients and clients.
