Hometown: Mansfield, OH
*What you do to give back?
Nicole is extremely involved in her community – helping others in multiple ways throughout the year. She is a Founder of Richland Young Professionals, created nearly 4 years ago, with over 500 members from Richland County. The group was created to get 21-45 year olds together for networking, professional development and giving back to their community. Nicole also spends time supporting families, parents, and others who are struggling financially by presenting to community members about finding financial success and understanding the process to build good credit as well as her involvement with the Parent Aide Program to help those understand how they can get back on their feet and be better parents. During the summer months, Nicole is involved with Spokes4Kids for the annual Shelby Bicycle Days festival in July, raising money to purchase bikes which are donated to kids in the community who couldn't afford a bike. Thank you Nicole for inspiring some many to give back in their community!*
