Scott Nielson

Development Officer
B.S. from Northwest Missouri State University
Major in Public Relations

I joined the University Advancement staff at Northwest as an associate athletic director for external affairs/development in August 2011. My role consists of developing and cultivating supporters for Bearcat athletics along with oversight of the external areas of marketing and media relations within the athletic department. 

Prior to returning to Northwest, I worked for eight years in various roles within the athletics marketing department at the University of Missouri in Columbia.

I am originally from Barnard, Mo.  Betsy, my wife, is a teacher at St. Gregory’s Catholic School in Maryville.  We have one daughter, Hattie.  We enjoy spending time with family and friends and being involved in all types of sports.
