Nelly was a literature professor at UCI.
She is shown taking part in a monthly ritual exclusive to certain professors in "Secret Society".
She and other staff members partake in a staff-only prom in "Prom Face/Off".
At the suggestion of Baby Cakes, she and all professors have robotic duplicates of them made in "Chinese New Year" to help reteach students after they fail their exams. However, all professors fall in love with their robotic counterparts, defeating their purpose. Later, the professors show fear when the robots become too possessive and are forced to fight their robots.
In "Dean's List", she and many others are killed during the eponymous game.
- As seen in "Secret Society", her spiritual animal was the beaver.
