Nicole’s volunteer involvement includes serving with the Little River Wetlands Project in Fort Wayne, IN to remove invasive species and track nesting turtles to create a safer habitat for animals. She is originally from Fort Wayne and recently moved to the Indianapolis area. When she is not working, she enjoys cuddling up on the couch with a good book or paddling on a body of water in her kayak. She has visited 23 states in the U.S. and seven countries.
