Nicole has been with United Way of Kentucky since 2017. She is passionate about improving lives and strengthening communities through community engagement and public policy.

She also serves on the Schnitzelburg Area Community Council Board of Directors, Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence's Strong Start Kentucky Coalition, LADDER Alliance member, and serves as a coalition member on Office of Kentucky State Treasurer Allison Ball's Financial Empowerment Coalition.
