These combined experiences taught her the value of creativity and self-direction. Nicole is now on a mission to cultivate these skills so that all people can thrive in these changing times.

Her shift to education started with her role as a high school service-learning coordinator while completing her Master of Science in Creativity and Change Leadership. She now teaches management at a community college and facilitates workshops to reawaken inborn creativity.

Nicole is currently co-creating an online learning community workshop called Create Your Own School with a team of other educators and teens.
