As a Kansas City native, Nicole would spend many Saturdays tagging along with her father and siblings to his locally owned trucking company. Other times, she would help her mom redesign their home. She quickly realized that she had a burning interest for design and decided to leave the trucking business to her dad and siblings.
After graduating from Kansas State with a Bachelor’s of Interior Architecture and Product Design, Nicole began her career designing for retail and hospitality. She found her purpose after having two children, Vivian and Vincent, recognizing the impact she could make on future students while creating learning environments at Hollis + Miller.
When not hard at work designing, Nicole loves spending time with her children, going on dates with her husband, and early morning workouts at her new favorite group workout, HIIT. If given the chance to take a destination vacation, you’ll find her relaxing on the beach.
