Hi, my name is Nikki Nelson and my family moved to South Carolina from Illinois in 2020. My husband and I have two boys Joel and Samuel who attend Harrisburg. As a family we love exploring, camping, and all things sports. In my free time, I love all things DIY and crafty. I have been a room parent for my kids classes every year since my oldest son was in Kindergarten. Last year I had the privilege of being the Room Parent Coordinator for Harrisburg and enjoyed volunteering at many of the events at school. I am excited to be the Room Parent Coordinator again and look forward to the new school year!
