 I'm Nellie, Lead NiswongerCARE Advisor, on the pursuit of her future career while assisting students in the same discovery process. I grew up in Kingsport and graduated from Sullivan South High School. With assistance and support of my family, I pursued college at ETSU and graduated in 2014 with a B.S. degree in General Psychology and Family Studies. This is my fifth year working with the Foundation. I'm passionate about our NiswongerCARE program and advocate for DACA and Undocumented students. When I'm not assisting students with the college-going process, you can catch me on the lake fishing, working out at the gym, watching Game Show Network, or loving on my two toy poodles. I recently got engaged to my partner of seven years! My doppelganger is Miranda Cosgrove (so I've been told.) A couple words of advice: don't rush adulthood, and don't be scared to follow your heart as it will reveal your true purpose in life.
