Hi, I'm Nicole, but you can call me Nic.

The fact that you are reading this suggests you are looking for more than a content creator, facilitator or someone to tick the box that says you are serious about investing in yourself or your employees. You're seeking a thought partner. Someone who has the experience and credibility, along with a sense of humor and a style that will resonate with your personal or business brand.

If this sounds like you, keep reading.

I'm a Human Resources professional by trade. Over the past 14 years I've had the opportunity to work with some of the best (and worst) people managers, leaders and employees in both large and growing startup organizations. 

Throughout my career I've: 


  • Served as a coach and business partner to founder CEOs

  • Scaled teams during periods of hyper growth

  • Experienced Series A through to post M&A

  • Built an entire People function from scratch

  • Directly led teams ranging from 2-25+ employees

  • Worked in SaaS, FinTech, CPG and D2C startups

  • Helped multiple organizations expand globally

  • Scaled remote first culture (prior to the pandemic)

I hold an MBA but I'm not an academic. In fact, I found alternatives that allowed me to graduate from high school a year early and moved to Australia at 18 to pursue a vocational degree vs. staying in the traditional US system. As a millennial, I too appreciate engaging content that is delivered in a fast, simple and digestible way.
