About Nicole

Nicole is fuzzy sock wearing, corny Christmas movie loving personal trainer, meditation instructor, and yogi with a curiosity for the world and an affinity for adventure, which has taken her to 30 countries around the world. Raised in a small town in Southern Wisconsin, she was born and bred a Green Bay Packers fan and doesn’t miss watching a game.  She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Psychology in 2007 and with a Master’s degree in Business Administration in 2014. 

After working in the marketing industry for several years, Nicole felt she wasn’t fulfilling her true purpose in life.  In 2015, she decided to quit her job and set off on a journey throughout Southeast Asia.  While wandering the temples of Ankor Wat in Cambodia, Nicole was hit with an overpowering feeling that holistic healing and fitness were a part of her purpose.  Shortly after, she began her journey enrolling in a personal training program and yoga teacher training.

Her personal journey exploring fitness & holistic healing has allowed her to manage living with PMDD, overcome trauma from the past and calm her anxiety and depression.  She believes in a holistic approach to wellness and fitness, incorporating the power of physical movement, yoga and meditation is the key to combating a variety of emotional and physical issues most of us suffer with.

When she isn’t wellness coaching, you’ll find Nicole soaking up the sun while reading on the beach, flipping around at acroyoga, painting or planning her next adrenaline pumping adventure scaling a rock or traveling to an exotic new place.  If you're interested in setting up a free 15 minute consultation or inquire about other services, please use the form to the right!
