Born in Inverness, she first played rugby at the age of six at Lochaber Rugby Club. More recently she was part of the successful Murrayfield Wanderers team who won last season's league and cup double and also plays for University of Edinburgh.
She is currently studying geophysics and meteorology at the University of Edinburgh and scored the final of six tries in the university's 36-7 victory over the University of St Andrews at BT Murrayfield last year.
Nelson, who was in the Scottish Alpine Ski Team (2009-2012), was called up to join Scotland Women for the 2016 Six Nations match against France at Broadwood Stadium. Her brother, Robbie, plays for Currie.
