Nicole was naturally adventurous and selfless. She loved the outdoors, especially water, which lead her to work for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. She traveled the world and worked in places like Africa and Papua New Guinea. She experienced various cultures and always found the beauty and goodness in all things. Nicole would consider her children her greatest adventure and accomplishment. After the birth of her daughter, Nicole switched careers to focus on family. Following her calling, she became a registered nurse. During her nursing career she was recognized for many accomplishments and her work as an oncology and hospice nurse.
Strength and courage were Nicole’s defining characteristics. It takes courage to travel the world, strength to change careers and both remained guideposts through the ups and downs of life. A private ceremony will be held by Nicole’s family celebrating her life.
