Scott grew up on a family dairy near Corinne, Utah. He became a member of the Bear River Valley Credit Union when he was fourteen. (His mother, Joyce Nelson, was the manager then.) He graduated from Box Elder High in 1978 and from Utah State in 1984 with a degree in Economics. He worked as a Loan Analyst for Farm Credit until 1988. He has always had an interest in financial services and has had his insurance licenses since 1987.
He enjoyed working in agri-business management in Central California until 1997 when the owners of the bedding plant nursery he was running decided to sell. He has been working with seniors helping them get their affairs in order since then by working with funeral homes in their pre-planning departments. Scott’s funeral planning experience has exposed him to the negative results many have experienced due to a lack of good advice and proper planning. Scott decided to do all he could to help. He is has been working to expand his practice beyond final expenses for several years. He is now a Registered Investment Advisor and Securities licensed and trained in proven financial strategies.
Scott returned to Brigham City in 2005 to be closer to his parents.
Scott and his wife, Julie (Gardner) have four children and 7 grandchildren. He is active in church activities, spoiling grandchildren properly and when possible attempting to lower his golf score.
