Hi! I’m Nicole.
I’ve always been in awe of the power of writing and story-telling, and I’m an avid journal-er.
I went to James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA. That place shaped me into a stronger, more inquisitive, and more compassionate person, and I’m forever grateful. I go back as often as I can.
After Harrisonburg, I moved to Washington, D.C. for my first full-time, salaried job. Living alone in D.C. was intimidating, but I learned how to live and work and travel independently.
Then, I moved to Florida to live with Bret. Florida was my favorite. I miss the sunshine, palm trees, the sushi, the manatees, the Gulf of Mexico, and our Disney day trips.
BTW, this is Bret. We met in grad school, and we’ve been married for 4 years!
We’re adjusting to life in the mountains of North Carolina: bluegrass, brews, and bears! Bret is a professor here and I still have my D.C. job, but I telework most of the time.
I’m a big believer in forgiveness, second chances, practicing gratitude, and using my privilege and resources to make a difference. Right now, I’m trying to be a better version of myself. I believe in the power of yoga, tea, journaling, intersectional feminism, vegetarianism, and I believe in humanity. I believe in all of us.
Oh, meet our cats! Velveeta is the sweetest, and Sadie is a handful, but we love her.
