Nicole has always loved new beginnings and challenges. As a fresh Michigan State University graduate, she started her career path in Sales and Human Resources. Helping people was always her favorite part of her job, whether it was a co-worker that needed advice, or a business partner that just needed someone to talk to. In the most recent years she hadn’t realized it yet, but her passion was sneaking up on her. While working a desk job, she still found ways to incorporate fitness into her routine. She would gather co-workers to walk at lunch, take a spin class after work, or meet at the gym before work started. She found herself motivating others without realizing it. Nicole also started to focus on the food she was incorporating into her diet and used the internet, social media, and word of mouth to find her healthy lifestyle.

Five years later, a lot has changed for Nicole. She moved from Chicago, IL, to Kalamazoo, MI, she took her first step into the fitness professional world and received her SPIN Certification, she married the man of her dreams, and they bought their first home. In the past year, she also left her desk job and has been 100% focusing on heath and wellness. While studying to be a Health Coach, Nicole has been teaching Barre and Spin classes. She has truly found her passion in life which is helping others make the changes they want to see in their lives, not only with fitness, but with attitude and behavior change.
