Nathan Anderson graduated from North Dakota State University where he earned his Bachelor of Science and Master’s degrees in accounting. After graduating from NDSU, Nathan spent the first 5 years of his career working in public accounting in the Minneapolis office of Deloitte & Touche, LLP.

While at Deloitte, he was part of the Audit and Assurance group and served both public and private clients gaining experience in a variety of industries and businesses. His time at Deloitte provided him with a great chance to work with and learn from some of the most talented CPAs in the business.

In addition to his accounting degrees, Nathan’s educational background has focused on finance and investing. He is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) as well as a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and has been part of the Prairiewood Wealth Management team since April 2019.


Nathan was born and raised 10 miles south of Fargo in Oxbow, ND and grew up spending his summers playing competitive golf. Both his parents and sister (Amy Olson) also golf. The entire family was able to build great family memories each summer together on the golf course.

After high school, Nathan was given the opportunity to play golf for NDSU where he played all four years. After graduating from NDSU, Nathan spent the next summer caddying for his sister who had turned professional and was in her rookie year on the LPGA tour. Many great memories were created that summer!

Nathan currently resides in Fargo with his wife, Katie Jo, and enjoys the time he gets to spend with his immediate and extended family. They all enjoy golfing together, playing pickleball, eating out, and relaxing at home.

Nathan is actively involved at Triumph Lutheran Brethren Church and the Downtown Fargo Rotary Club.
