About Bridget Nelson: 

I am a University of Nebraska­ –Lincoln alumna who grew up on a farm in Osceola, Nebraska. Here at the university, I received my bachelor’s degree in broadcast production along with a minor in Spanish. After college, I had the honor to work as a two-year temporary video production specialist for HuskerVision. I also worked at HuskerVision as a student worker during my college career. I am now thrilled to have the opportunity to work for IANR Media as their Producer III!

Something that most people don’t know about me is that I used to have 20 farm cats back in the day, and of course I knew all of their names.

Outside of work I enjoy watching Netflix with my cat, talking on the phone for hours with my boyfriend, friends and family, bargain shopping and exercising.
