Nate was born and raised in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Growing up he participated in rodeo and was a professional bareback rider for 15 years. Nate loves the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing, so it came as no surprise he earned a degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Biology from Iowa State University. Nate joined our team in 2016, and his favorite thing about the lab is the people he gets to work with every day.
