“Nicole was one of the featured speakers at our Burnaby Public Library events last summer. I was impressed not only with the content of her talk, but with the way she expressed herself. As she relayed her personal and professional journey, she connected with the audience in a very authentic way. Her ability to share her vulnerability and her drive to improve the life of others with her expertise was truly humbling. Nicole is an excellent communicator who knows how to teach and inspire!”
