Born and raised in Colorado, Dr. Nelson says she will always be a mountain girl at heart. An avid runner, she ran the Boston Marathon in 2014. She also enjoys yoga, skiing, riding her horse, hiking, biking and exploring new restaurants and breweries. She has two dogs: Bear, a German shepherd, she calls a big neurotic ball of love; and Maddie, a German shepherd mix, loves to climb trees in a hunt for squirrels. Kramer is the thoroughbred she’s had for 15 years who loves eating Pop-Tarts® and going for trail rides.
