As a mother to twin toddlers and a newborn, Nicole knows what it means to have to work hard to keep your health a priority. At one point in her life, Nicole was so consumed by how bad she felt in her own skin that she checked out of being “real” and instead spent her time obsessing about how she could be more thin, more athletic, and well… more anything. After finding a love of running and a respect for her unique beauty, she has devoted her life to helping women and girls drop their body baggage and embrace their unique beauty and strength too.
For over sixteen years, Nicole has provided sports medicine/rehabilitation, personal training, and group exercise to clients, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge gleaned from years of practice in medical and therapeutic health settings with specialties ranging from orthopedics, internal medicine, sports performance, pre- and post-rehab, and physical fitness. She currently acts as a personal champion, serving clients in the Boulder and Denver areas, tailoring programs to their individual needs.
Nicole is no stranger to the rigors of personal health: an accomplished runner, she competed as a Division I athlete with the University of Iowa in cross-country and track and field and has completed both the Boston Marathon and the Chicago Accenture Triathlon.
Her education includes:
Master’s degree in exercise science and athletic training, University of Iowa
