Alex Nelson is an entrepreneur, life transformation coach, retreat facilitator, and the host of the Through The Veil podcast. After selling his asphalt business in early 2017, he embarked upon a journey which led him through various corporate management jobs, finally landing in his current role as a full time personal coach and transformational experience specialist. He has spent the last 7 years working closely with coaching clients, a calling he felt deeply after curing himself of alcoholism in 2012 through deeply intentional ceremonial work. His deepest commitment is to help people to uncover the tools and skills they have within themselves for healing so that they can live their best life unburdened by trauma.
