Despite moving to the Mile Square on a whim, Nicole is happy to call Hoboken her home. She graduated from Wake Forest University with a degree in biology and now works as a health & benefits consultant in the city. When she’s not killing it in corporate America, Nicole can be found shopping for her dream home on Park and Bloomfield, sipping a margarita on the rocks (she has yet to find one she hasn’t liked), or being dragged into a dog park by her giant goldendoodle, Sammy.
