Dr. Nielson grew up in London, England but made her way state-side for her undergraduate back east at Wellesley College. During those years, each summer and every chance she could she was back in the mountains working as a hiking guide for teenagers in Rocky Mountain National Park. After completing her undergraduate degree, she finally made her way out to the mountains for good where she completed her medical training at the University of Utah. She knew she wanted to go into pediatrics and fell in love with Primary Children’s Hospital, where she completed her pediatrics residency. Growing up, she always knew she wanted to be a pediatrician. She has a wide range of interests from newborn care to mental health. When she is not working, Dr. Nielson is hiking, skiing and running around the mountains with her husband, two kids, and their dog, soaking up the fresh air, sunshine, and starry night sky.

She is excited to bond with her families and watch her patients grow and thrive into young healthy adults. She looks forward to meeting your family!
