Ginger Nelson grew up in the small town of Spearman, where she learned to value faith, family, hard work, and community service. She is a devoted mother, small businesswoman, and community volunteer.

After graduating from Texas Tech University with degrees in Spanish, advertising and law, Ginger moved to Amarillo with her husband and high school sweetheart, Kevin, to follow their dreams of starting a family and business in the Texas Panhandle.

Ginger has counseled local families and small businesses for over 20 years. She has received numerous honors in her legal career, including board certification in estate planning and probate and an AV Preeminate rating from Martindale Hubble. She and Kevin soon developed a loyal client base and started their own law firm in 2003. In 2011, they branched out to purchase the Amarillo Building, Amarillo’s original high-rise, and began learning about commercial real property management. In 2014, they expanded their real estate business to include real estate development in the franchise of My Place Hotels. They enjoy the challenges of owning a small business and working together.

Ginger has had the privilege to serve on numerous boards and commissions, including the Amarillo Economic Development Corporation. She has also volunteered for non-profits including Boy Scout Troop 86, the Amarillo Symphony Guild, the Amarillo Area Bar Association, the Plemons-Eakle Neighborhood Association, and Kids Inc.

Ginger and Kevin are proud parents to Madeleine, Pearse and Jace, with Ginger playing an active role in many school organizations. The family attends Hillside Christian Church where she volunteers and teaches women’s Bible study.
