Pacific Northwest Leader
Nelson served in the Air Force as an acquisition manager where he helped develop, test, and launch new products and technologies for the warfighter. After 8 years in the service and a short deployment to Afghanistan, he moved to the Pacific Northwest to pursue a MBA at the University of Washington and to enjoy the mountains of the Cascade Range. While attending school full-time, he organized and co-led a successful self-supported climb of Mt Rainier with 7 other MBA students while raising money for charity. Since then, he's climbed several more peaks and found great climbing partners thanks to VetEx, and is stoked to be able to give back to the community!
