Nicole was born in Baltimore, MD but grew up in southeastern WI as the oldest of twelve children.  Her parents came to know the Lord before she was a year old, and she was saved around the age of five when, realizing her sinful condition before a holy God, she called on Jesus for deliverance.  As a young girl, she enjoyed reading missionary biographies, which God used to direct her life towards service to Him.  She surrendered her life to God during her early teen years.

Though she vowed to never take another piano lesson after high school, God directed her steps through her parents to attend Baptist College of Ministry as a music major.  God used this to give her a passion for generational discipleship ministry.  As an alumna of the school, she has been privileged to serve on staff as a piano instructor and administrative assistant at Baptist College of Ministry since her graduation in 2012.  Over the past decade she has maintained a large private studio, directed a small music academy, and taught private and group piano lessons at the Falls Baptist Music School.

Nicole enjoys spending time outdoors or in coffee shops, traveling internationally, reading, and writing.  She is burdened to see the next generation so know and love God that they would say with the apostle Peter, “Lord, to whom shall we go?  Thou has the words of eternal life” (John 6:68).
