Substance Use Disorder Professional
Nicole’s journey into recovery began in December of 2013, after experiencing the devastating effects of drugs and alcohol that left her void of family, a home and hope. She has found purpose in helping people find solution in themselves through education in treatment of substance use. She began working with women in early treatment and found she wanted to do more to help people, leading her to pursue a degree in Addiction Studies. Nicole has worked in the field since 2014, became a licensed counselor in 2016 and has worked with those in private treatment and within correctional settings. She recently became a new mom, fulfilling a dream she felt was long past gone. Today, she works with a dynamic team supporting people as they gain an understanding of their disease, so they too may find that they are worthy of the gift of recovery.
