Nicole received her undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Colorado – Colorado Springs.  After receiving her master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction, Nicole went on to teach for a few years.  Realizing that her childhood dream to be an attorney was still her ambition, Nicole switched paths and went to law school at the Creighton University School of Law. 

While in law school, Nicole served on the editorial staff of the Creighton Law Review.  She also had a judicial clerkship with Judge Timothy O’Grady from the District Court of Pottawattamie County in Iowa and clerked with both a law firm as well as with in-house counsel of a Fortune 500 Company.  After that she went into a big firm and started honing her litigation skills.
