Nicole delights in writing and does it even when she not getting paid for it. Currently completing her first book, Nicole has over fifteen years of experience in writing. While earning several degrees in different fields, she developed expertise in academic writing for diverse purposes and audiences. Her passion for improving the lives of children and their families led her to careers in education and social work. Along those paths, Nicole's professional and personal experiences have increased her knowledge of the subject areas she excels in writing about: Education, social work, mental health, social justice and nonprofit organizations. She has a more recent interest in home design and home improvement and writes weekly articles for a website dedicated to those topics.

When writing isn't relieving her creative itch, Nicole enjoys dreaming up art projects. She has familiarity with a variety of crafts, which shared with her elementary school students, and has taught fiber arts (knitting, sewing, needle felting) to children during her summers. She enjoys writing DIY pieces for both children and adults, and articles about incorporating creative projects into home decor.
