Shirley W. Nelson, Retired Director of Human Resources at Bluefield Community Hospital, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements and leadership in human resources.
Though Ms. Nelson started her career in manufacturing and began studying accounting, the field of human resources opened up to her. When the president of the company she worked for announced they were starting a human resources department, she jumped at the opportunity, working in that department at a hospital for 12 years. After this venture, she received a broker’s license and went into real estate with a friend. Since 2009, Ms. Nelson has been a volunteer with the Village Chapel. She is deeply compassionate about her work with the church, and is able to utilize her background and skills in human resources in this venture.
Ms. Nelson earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting from West Virginia Business College. In 2005, she received a Dedication/Hard Work Award from the U.S. Open Championship in recognition of her services. She is proud of the achievements throughout her career, as it shows that she was able to overcome any obstacle that came her way. Growing up on a farm, she has never imagined that she would make it in the business world, but through hard work and applying her skills, Ms. Nelson can reflect that she did just that. She attributes her success to her perseverance and being able to reach compromises that made everyone in the workplace happy. She was able to utilize her ability to interview others and make decisions based on people’s abilities and whether or not they would make a good match for an organization. In her spare time, she enjoys golfing.
