Nicole was raised in West Virginia and then spent eight years in Connecticut before joining SBA List. She was formerly Public Policy Assistant at the Family Institute of Connecticut. During her time there she was an outspoken advocate of religious freedom and critic of the HHS Mandate. She testified against making abortion an “essential health benefit” in the new state health exchange and was an important contributor to the coalition fighting successfully to keep assisted suicide from being legalized. She also participated in 40 Days for Life and supported the efforts of local pregnancy centers.
Nicole trained to be a professional violinist, but journalism and writing are part of her family background. She loves working in pro-life advocacy and is grateful that God called her to be open to a new career.
