Nicole began her career in early childhood education working with children of all ages at Child Care Centers, Preschools, and as a Nanny. She opened her own small Child Care/Preschool and operated that for some time before deciding to pursue college at the University of Southern Maine. Her travels with family brought her from Portland, Maine where she grew up to British Columbia, Canada. Back to Massachusetts where she discovered Montessori and enrolled her 4 children. Her children thrived in the self-directed program. New Hampshire is where Nicole and her family have now settled. She has been busy raising her children whom are now all productive adults. Health and fitness are very important to Nicole. She is a Certified Personal Trainer and believes healthy eating and fitness are important for children to thrive. In 2012 she owned a gym and ran that for many years before joining Red Oak Montessori. In 2021, Nicole completed her Montessori Teacher Training and is currently the Director, Lead and Kindergarten Teacher at Red Oak Montessori School!
