I would highly recommend Nicole to any individual/organization as a recruiter and talent placement expert. I first met Nicole through the Women in Bio organization, when she came to speak about job seeking to the peer group that I co-led for the Mentors, Associates, Peers, Sponsorship (MAPS) program. She was very engaging, and took time to speak personally to every woman in the room. She became a regular fixture at our meetings, and coached several of these women on an ongoing basis. Nicole directly helped 3 women in that initial group with a job transition. I can say that she is great at working with a candidate to understand what their ideal job match is, and helping them to develop their personal presentation to make it clear to organizations why they are a good fit for that role. Twice she took the time to call me and coach me through different issues related to my latest job transition. Nicole gave me knowledge that was both technically on-point and insightful, as well as encouragement that led me to feel empowered in the choices that I was making. She is also a delight to speak with- passionate but funny, candid but also caring. Recently I transitioned away from the bench, in part with Nicole’s help. Additionally, in the last 6 months Nicole has volunteered as a peer group leader for the MAPS program. In my position as the now Co-Vice Chair of the MAPS program, I am appreciative that she has agreed to work with us. Her group is consistently well attended, and the positive feedback that I have heard demonstrates that Nicole’s skills are a benefit to a diverse audience of individuals in a wide variety of career stages. For all of these reasons I am happy to recommend Nicole as an expert in her field of recruiting, and as generally an asset to any organization that she would work with.
