Nicole’s interest in mental health began at a young age, which led her to pursue a bachelor’s degree in psychology from UT Tyler.
Nicole started her career as a Service Coordinator at Andrew’s Center, where she had the opportunity to serve the IDD population for five years. She then joined Breckenridge Village in August 2020 as a Day Program staff member and later transitioned to become a Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professional (QIDP) in 2022. As a QIDP, Nicole advocates for our residents’ best interests and collaborates with families and their teams to create plans that achieve each resident’s individual goals through active treatments.
In addition to her work at Breckenridge Village, Nicole enjoys spending time with her family and friends, especially her two sons. She has been a scout leader for the past five years, and she loves volunteering and giving back to the community, with her favorite event being “Day of Caring,” which she has participated in for ten years. Nicole also loves traveling and being outdoors.
