She's all about empowering organizations and their leaders, using her unique blend of engaging content and practical advising to drive real results. Nicole's secret sauce? A mix of innovative thinking, fresh perspectives, and streamlined processes, all delivered with her authentic, resourceful style.

Nicole's journey began at Walden University, where she studied business and organizational psychology. But she didn't stop there. A lifelong learner, Nicole continues to soak up knowledge from innovators across the globe, constantly sharpening her skills and expertise.

Her insights and strategies have not only been featured in top publications like Business Insider and The Startup but have also caught the attention of podcasters and content creators. You might even have come across her strategy for building effective connections on LinkedIn in Stu Heinecke's best-selling book “Get the Meeting.”

Recently, Nicole has been making waves in the consulting and program creation world. She played a key role as an expert advisor for Pacific Community Ventures’s Small Business Basics cohort and created the Lending Readiness Accelerator Program, which helps disadvantaged businesses get up to speed for funding opportunities. In 2023, she upped the ante by structuring an emerging technologies program for a Fortune 500 company, managing a portfolio worth a whopping $330M.

When she's not revolutionizing the business world, Nicole is at home near Winston-Salem, North Carolina, enjoying life with her fiancé and kids. Outside of her professional life, she sits as the Vice President of the Board of Trustees for Winston-Salem Montessori and spends time reading, writing, and hiking.
