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.  In the spring of 2018, she became the co-anchor of Channel 8 Eyewitness News at 5AM, 6AM and Midday.

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.
