He has served on boards which include the Rotary Club of Monterey, Central Coast Youth Sports Organization and the helped launch the Independent Transportation Network (ITN Monterey County) which provides rides to seniors and the visually impaired.

Not unlike so many of us, Matt has experienced how challenging and daunting it can feel to navigate the end of life issues of a family member. Nelson mentions, “I have witnessed that employing the available resources and drawing from family and friends dramatically lessens the burden and stress.” He is committed to the endeavors of the Hospice Giving Foundation and looks forward to serving on the board.
