Nicole was born in Walnut Creek, California and moved to Hong Kong as a baby. In Hong Kong, she saw many International Broadway Tours and (surprise!) got the theater bug!
After eight years in China, her family relocated to Northern Virginia where she spent the rest of her time "growing up." She spent most of her teenage years as one of the few students interested music theater at a small school, so she spent many a summer at various college programs seeking out opportunities to nurture her passion.
She studied at Oklahoma City University, and has since been on the Sister Act National Tour, LCT's The King and I 1st National Tour, and most recently has been on the My Fair Lady National Tour.
