David Nelson was born and raised on a large grain farm in Northwest Minnesota (the town is Middle River in case you’ve ever heard of it) which taught him hard work and respect. David have two brothers that also live in the Twin Cities and one sister who lives up north with her husband. David went to the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks where he received a Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy. The reason why David went into the occupational therapy (OT) field as his father was diagnosed with Amyloidosis in 2000 and OT helped him remain at home until his death in 2001. After graduation, David took his first job in the OT field at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester where he worked on the “brain team” that specialized in treating patients with strokes and traumatic brain injuries. Eventually he moved to the Twin Cities and worked for Fairview Health Services and Brookdale Senior Living in both inpatient and outpatient therapy.
David married to Nicole and they have a wonderful Boxer named Lexy. They enjoy hitting up the local breweries, restaurants and spending time with friends. Since Minnesota summers are so short, David and Nicole try to soak up as much summertime weather as possible with grilling out, going to the lake, and taking bike rides! Since David was raised on Lake of the Woods, he is an avid fisherman (summer and winter). David also enjoy movies, cheering on Minnesota sports team, curling (yes…curling), and reading. And if you didn’t know by now, he is a huge Star Wars fan thus one of the reasons why he named their team, the Imperial Home Team, after Darth Vader’s Imperial forces. David is confident enough to tell people that he own a movie quality Darth Vader costume that he have had the opportunity to wear it for kid’s birthday parties and for a few movie theaters for the Star Wars premieres.
