Nicole has been working in pediatric private practice in North Carolina for the past 6 years, and before that, worked 5 years in the public school system in Georgia. Nicole loves working with children of all needs and abilities and specializes in working with younger children from birth to school-age, specifically in the areas of early language development, pragmatic speech development, speech sound and phonological disorders, early literacy skills, and fluency/stuttering. She is also proficient in basic Spanish and sign language. Nicole is passionate about helping children develop and maintain the confidence and skills to be their own advocates and take pride in their communication. She also values caregiver and sibling involvement and loves to coach families on the best ways to support their early communicators.
Outside of work, Nicole enjoys spending time with friends and family exploring Raleigh and making the most of what this beautiful city has to offer. She also enjoys relaxing on the patio, playing with her dog Remi, and spoiling her new little niece who couldn’t be any cuter.
