Nicole completed her Masters in Science of Education in Speech-Language Pathology through SUNY Buffalo State, New York in 2014., and returned to work in Thunder Bay following the completion of her program. She has been fortunate to work alongside many professionals and agencies during her career. Some highlights from her employment experience include working with children and youth with complex needs on multi disciplinary teams, providing services to remote communities both in person and virtually, creating and implementing programs to facilitate speech and language development, providing swallowing assessments, and at times supervising speech assistants. These roles were fulfilled while working in a variety of settings from daycares, child centres, schools, home care, and long term care.

Nicole remains passionate to serve the North and beyond. She hopes to support children with their speech and language needs while supporting the demands of waitlists. She continues to learn, advocate, and accept, those that have been identified or identify, as Neurodiverse. Nicole describes herself as Neurodiversity affirming and uses a strength based approach. In addition, she hopes to learn more about supporting families on their breast feeding journey with swallowing support.

When Nicole is not working she is with her family. She enjoys spending time with her husband, kids, and dogs. Nicole enjoys creating with endless possibilities. She can be found cooking, cake decorating, photography, and various art projects. She enjoys being outside where she might be paddle boarding, taking a sauna at the lake, or fishing.
