As a Financial Advisor, I work with clients to help them realize, define, and prioritize their goals. I start my process by listening and getting to know my clients, their concerns, and desires. I am proud to work alongside family members who are financial advisors including my wife, Holly Nielsen, and father-in-law, Bill Hudson.

I have been in the financial services industry for over 14 years. Prior to joining Wells Fargo Advisors, I worked in business development and wealth advising for multiple Iowa based companies. Throughout my career, I have continued to broaden my education by obtaining the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC?), Charted Retirement Planning Counselor (CRPC?), and Chartered Mutual Fund Counselor (CMFC?) designations.

Before beginning my financial career, I earned my bachelor's degree in Marketing from the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business. I also received a minor in Communication Studies. While in Iowa City, I was an active member in the community and an avid Hawkeye athletic supporter.

Away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Holly, my children, Mila & Axel, and our beloved yellow lab, Simba. I am involved with the 100 Men on a Mission Group and the Single Parent Provision Organization. I also enjoy going on family bike rides, Hawkeye and North Carolina sporting events, and tinkering around with home improvement projects.
