Show jumping
Throughout 2010 and 2011, Nellie competed internationally. She traveled to Canada in 2010 and finished 8th in a World Cup class on her mount Iveena S. In 2011, she competed for the US at Wettenhall in England and in Chantilly France, where she had her best finishes — 2nd and 9th in the 1.35-meter classes. She returned home and finished 6th before a hometown audience in the $75,000 Upperville Jumper Classic that same year.

Nellie retired from competition when she entered George Washington University Law School. Since graduating in the spring of 2016, she has passed the Bar and is in the attorney honors program at the Federal Communications Commission in Washington, DC.
