InfoSon of Army Major General Robert L. Nabors, he was born in Fort Dix, NJ and lived in Arizona, Maryland, Germany, Virginia, South Korea, Florida, Italy, Massachusetts in his youth. He received a B.A. from the University of Notre Dame in 1993 and an M.A. from University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 1996.

Nabors first joined the OMB, straight out of graduate school, as a program examiner in 1996. Assigned to the Bureau's commerce branch, he was given responsibility for the decennial census, and while he was working on that task, he was recognized as a "budding wunderkind" by OMB Director Jacob Lew, who promoted him to special assistant to the director in 1998. In 2000, he was further promoted to assistant director for administration and executive secretary.

Nabors joined the minority staff of the powerful House Appropriations Committee at the end of the Clinton Administration. Appropriations Chair David Obey promoted him to minority staff director in 2004. When the Democrats won the House that year, Nabors became majority staff director.“'He was just the best man for the job,' says Obey, 'and he understands the House, he understands the committee, he understands the town, he understands the bureaucracy, and he doesn’t take any crap from anybody. His demeanor is very nice and very cool, but he doesn’t take any crap from people.'” Nabors said it was his job not just to "recite" budget numbers but to “own the information” and understand the human meanings behind the numbers.
