Nicole started riding at the age of 8 in the Northern Virginia area and showed in local hunter shows throughout high school.
She graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Animal and Poultry Sciences with an Equine Emphasis in 2006. While preferring to pursue a full time career with horses, Nicole instead took a job with Lockheed Martin and is still working there today.
Nicole began volunteering with NVTRP in 2015 and became a PATH certified therapeutic riding instructor in November 2016. Nicole loves watching all of our riders grow through their bonds with our horses.
