Nicole started her coaching career in 2007 around the time she discovered “life doesn’t have to happen to me” as she put it. It seems an innocent revelation; however, that small realization created movement. It also opened her eyes to others who are suffering in silence. “I look at people’s faces and feel their frustration.” It seems that more feel trapped in the life they’ve “chosen” and thus they are merely existing. Wanting to do more to help others, she obtained her Holistic Health Coach Certification through The Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2012. At the time, her focus was weight management; however, she noticed a missing link to achieving weight loss goals. And it became apparent that this link had an impact on all goals. That link is one’s mindset.
This shift in focus has led her toward the restoration of spirit as a baseline to achieving any goal.
“I want you to know your worth and share your passion/calling with the world for you are a gift.”
Since 2012, Nicole has trained in other areas, including positive psychology, nutrition psychology, heart rate variability for stress management, and trauma management to be able to add more value to her clients’ experience and shorten their path to goal realization.
Causes and Organizations
Out of the Darkness (http://afsp.donordrive.com/) - Suicide...while I've not been close to anyone who has taken that route to end the pain, I've been in units and learned of cadre and the commander taking their own lives. And whether I know the person or not, my heart hurts as though I knew them personally every time I hear of anyone anywhere taking their own life because it means they were in that much pain and felt that had nowhere to turn. That should not be the case, ever! I want to help prevent that. Life is too precious and you never know who's life you're touching even when you don't feel you are.
Make it Count Today (http://www.makeitcounttoday.org/) - I was the Casualty Assistance Officer for this family and had the honor of being by Spencer Duncan's parents' and brothers' side when they buried part of him at Arlington Cemetery in Virginia. It's one of those moments when you realize just how fragile life is. The Duncan family is one of strength and love and I've adopted them as my other parents. ?
