After graduating from Mad Magazine University and subsequently from the University of San Diego with a mass media communications and business degree, Nicole has spent over 25 years working for every media imaginable including radio, newspaper, television and now much of the “new media” online. She anchored, reported, and produced for several California TV stations, including one that broadcast to the Los Angeles Market. She hosted a show called Southern California Life and was the Entertainment Reporter for top local San Diego news station, KUSI-TV.
She has been a travel reporter, documenting life in Russia and Ireland, having lived in both countries for four years. Her latest documentary, The Sacred Sites of Ireland, aired on two television stations. Nicole’s experience in front of and behind the camera have given her a unique understanding of what captivates an audience and how one can best express their message to the media. Nicole is thrilled to be blending her media and business experience, now consulting with over 1,500 entrepreneurs, helping them become “celebrities” in their field, getting booked on media and honing their media message. She’s a #1 bestselling author, international speaker and media coach..
