Nellie Nutting

Nellie Nutting has been a part of BNI for four years and is the Area Director for Wyoming.  She and her husband Doug have been married almost 30 years and have two adult children, Samantha and Beau.  Samantha and her husband, James, live on a Marine Corp base in Twentynine Palms, CA and Beau is attending the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND.  Doug and Nellie are in the process of moving from Gillette, WY to Rock Springs, WY. 

Nellie is not a stranger to education and has her BS in Elementary Education from Eastern Oregon University and her Master’s in Adult Education from the University of Wyoming.  She enjoys working with members to gain knowledge of the best ways to develop a successful BNI membership.  She has been a member of a BNI chapter in Gillette for four years and is looking forward to starting new chapters in the southern part of Wyoming. 

While growing up in western Oregon as one of 5 children, Nellie learned the value of team work and cooperation.  This and the emphasis on education in BNI attracted her to be part of the formation of the 1st of 3 BNI chapters in Gillette.  She would consider herself a lifelong learner and believes that the secret is to put into practice what you learn. 


Nellie loves to camp and fish with her family and traveling to new places.  She also enjoys music and theater and was recently in a community theaters production of MASH.
