Stacy Nelson recently joined the Sleepy Eye office of the financial services firm Edward Jones as branch office administrator. “A branch office administrator is not only responsible for the daily operation of the branch, but also must provide top-level client service and marketing support for my activities,” said Bill Ries, local financial advisor for the firm.

Ries added that he was impressed not only with Nelson’s office skills and efficiency, but also with her knowledge of the community. “I know she will be a terrific asset to our team as we strive to provide our clients unparalleled personal service,” said Ries.

Nelson said she is excited for the opportunity at Edward Jones and looks forward to meeting and working with their clients.

Nelson and her husband, Joey, live just west of Sleepy Eye where he runs their crop and dairy cattle farm. Stacy and Joey have three children—Nick, a high school senior; Maya, in eighth grade; and Kailey, in fourth grade—all students at St. Mary’s School.

“We enjoy fishing and boating with our family and going to our children’s extra-curricular activities,” said Nelson. “I like to read and garden and spend time with family and friends.”

So far, Nelson said she is also enjoying the bustle of working downtown and seeing the action out of the firm’s Main Street window.
