Nicole was born and raised in Long Island, NY. She has been around animals her entire life. Her life’s ambition was to be able to work with animals every day, and she is happy that she has achieved that goal. She grew up around dogs and horses. She currently has a chubby beagle named Maggie. Nicole earned a Bachelor of Science in Equine Studies from Centenary University, which included time spent studying abroad at Hartpury University in England.
Throughout her career, she has held positions as a barn manager, racehorse identification photographer, and art teacher. Her passion for animals and daily interactions with Centenary’s veterinarian encouraged her to pursue a career in the veterinary field. Nicole understands that the veterinary office can be a daunting place and she wants to help make it a more pleasant experience for our furry friends.
Her hobbies include horseback riding, scuba diving, traveling, painting, and photography.
