I have been interacting with Nicole in several different ways for over ~3 years now. I met her for the first time when she led a workshop on personal branding, LinkedIn pages, and resumes. I learned a ton from her then and modeled by resume on an example she provided! Later she started volunteering with me in the Southern California Chapter of Young Women In Bio, where we both work to create events that will inspire students to pursue careers in STEM. I went on to Chair the group and Nicole served as my Vice-chair. She has been an enthusiastic volunteer, encouraging the group and the students to all keep pushing against any boundaries! She recently led a similar personal branding workshop for YWIB students. As I pushed to transition careers, she has been my support providing encouragement and coaching before interviews, negotiations, and even before performance reviews for my old job. I’m happy to say I have a new job now and she helped me to earn exactly what I deserve! Her positive energy is exactly what I needed to push me to ask for more!
