Nicole is a member of the 2021 class of the Virginia Association of Broadcasters Best of the Best Leadership Program. In 2011, she was named one of the “25 Under 35” working in media by Editor & Publisher magazine.

Nicole’s favorite thing to do outside of the office is to unplug from her devices and spend time outside kayaking with her family. If a river isn’t available, she’ll happily ride her bike.
She lives in Chesterfield County with her husband, daughter and rescue dog (who unfortunately doesn’t like water).
