Nicole grew up in Greeley, CO playing any and every sport she could. Her mom’s side of the family is from Lincoln, and her grandfather is a UNL grad, so she is very familiar with Nebraska. “I am so excited to be a part of the Nebraska community and love being a part of your day”, says Nicole.
She was drawn to broadcasting by a love of learning about the community and doing something different every day. She graduated from the University of Arizona in Tucson with a BA in journalism. Nicole has been climbing the professional ladder since her initial arrival at Channel 8 Eyewitness News. She started out as the overnight reporter, and then promoted to a weekend producer/reporter position. In June of 2016, she was promoted to weekend anchor. “I love to really get to know others! I think the key to good stories is developing relationships and try to make that connection at every story,” says Nicole about her job.
Nicole has a puppy that takes up a lot of her time. They go on walks and to the dog park. She also enjoys running, playing volleyball and spending time at the lake.
