Nancy J. Nelsen-Flom, Founder
Imagine for a moment, a young girl tossing aside baby dolls and dress up clothes to gather up the scraps brought home from her father’s flooring business. Imagine a table covered with leftover window treatments, wall coverings, and flooring samples, and a little golden-haired girl hard at work creating her very own interior designs. Imagine her many years later, with the same determination and innovation to create something of value, but this time for a trade she has come to know inside and out.
An honors graduate of the University of Minnesota, Nancy’s work as an interior designer for architectural and interior design firms was followed by experience as a project manager for a retail floor covering dealership. After developing an in-depth technical floor covering background, she realized how beneficial this information would have been to her while working as a designer. With an emphasis on fairness, she was resolute on forming a floor covering dealership to relate specifically to the trade; hence the inception of INTERSOURCE in 1996.
Now imagine Nancy away from the office. A spry mother of two who likes to have FUN! She has eclectic taste in music, loves to host a good party, prefers a workout to a cup of coffee in the morning, and whenever the opportunity arises, hops a plane with her husband and children in tow and travels to remote vacation destinations. Flash forward 30 years…Imagine a woman with some proudly worn, well-earned laugh lines, her toes in the sand, waves at her feet, sipping a Pina Colada while enjoying the beach life of Troncones, Mexico. It’s her dream, but it’s certainly not hard to imagine.
