Nick started his career serving as a missionary and never really stopped.
After college, Nick went to the Dominican Republic to work with impoverished children. This powerful experience was his introduction to the Spanish language, which led him to Spain for three years. In Madrid, he taught English to first and second graders and played semi-pro basketball.
Because of a desire to help his own country and to be closer to family, Nick came back to America in 2014 to serve as grassroots director in the U.S. Senate campaign of his father, Jeff Bell. As a fluent Spanish speaker, he conducted outreach to the Hispanic community.
After helping to run his father’s Senate campaign, Nick decided to serve the country with the federal government. Most recently, this was in the policy division of the U.S. Department of Labor and prior to that in the Capitol Hill office of U.S. Senator Thom Tillis.
Nick grew up in the 39th district where he attended Holy Spirit School and W.T. Woodson High School. He graduated from the college of William and Mary in 2009 with a B.S. in biology.
In his spare time, Nick enjoys sports of all kinds, mostly basketball, and volunteering at a local nursing home.
