Who I am. My approach to TALK“Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you’ve got to say, and say it hot.” D. H. Lawrence My approach to WORK “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” Charles Darwin My approach to DESIGN “Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.” Leonardo da Vinci My approach to LEADERSHIP “A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.” Lao Tzu My approach to LIFE “Three be the things I shall never attain: envy, content and sufficient champagne” Dorothy Parker
Pe o ple s eem t o like my w ork. Colleague at Thompson Media Group “Nicole is one the finest marketing professionals I have worked with. Her knowledge of online and social media/marketing is the best I have ever seen in my career. Her dedication toward advancing the strategic plan and working with all levels of managements is nothing short of amazing. She is creative and always willing to go the extra mile. I have enjoyed working with Nicole and she will be a true asset to any organization she wishes to join.” Steve Phillips, Vice President of Human Resources at Thompson Media Group Colleagues at The Performance Institute “Nicole is one of the finest mangers and people I know. I’m in sales so my appreciation for marketing should be understood, but never did my appreciation reach the level it should have until I had the opportunity to work with Nicole. She is cutting edge, passionate, dedicated, and an extremely intelligent professional. Moreover, her ability to manage others is something I appreciate because it is a bit different then how I might, but equally – and perhaps more – effective. Culturally, I doubt she can be beat there either. She was a colleague and friend. Even staff see Nicole as someone who can be approached on many levels. Lastly, the thing I most appreciated about Nicole was her willingness to work with sales, and her even temper. Too often, the relationship between marketing and sales can become combative/competitive and hurts progress. Although Nicole is a Marketer first, her willingness and desire to align those two functions is smart and critical, and as passionate as she might be, her positions are always fair, rational, even-keeled, and most of the time, dead on. You’d be far worse without Nicole on your team.” Blake T. Zach, Independent Day/Swing Trader “During the three years that I have worked with Nicole, I have been constantly impressed with her combined abilities as a visionary, strategist and leader. Nicole is a creative force and avid learner—combining imagination, vision and the talent to clearly communicate key objectives throughout an organization. She continually challenges herself, as well as others, to “think outside of the box” and strive to achieve more than might otherwise be possible. Nicole also serves as a true brand ambassador, strengthening both brand performance as well as corporate culture in a way that creates tremendous long-term value. Nicole’s collaborative style and ability to challenge the status quo and our processes has enabled her and her team to develop and deliver best-in-class marketing and branding solutions for the business. She continually provides a working environment for her team where they are challenged to continually learn and grow. It is a pleasure working with such a dedicated and talented person like Nicole.” Amy Shioji, Integrated Marketing and Optimization, AARP
I li ke being a lea d e r. Af ter managing p eopl e f or 7 years, I ’ m pret t y good a t it . Here’s what some of my former staff say: “Nicole was a great manager, who provided leadership for the team and was a great mentor.” Cynthia Nguyen, Digital Strategist focused on web, mobile, social media and outreach at TMP “Nicole is a passionate and creative person. She’s infectiously dedicated to her work, and it doesn’t take long for employers and clients to see results.Whether behind a desk managing a marketing campaign, or behind Photoshop bring a creative idea to life - Nicole is well skilled in disseminating effective and attractive marketing strategies.” Antoine Butler, Senior Front End Developer at HZDG “I worked with Nicole for quite some time at The Performance Institute. She always put work first and is a tireless marketing machine! It was a pleasure working with someone so driven yet still compassionate for her coworkers.” Jen Rhoton, Principal, Jen Rhoton Designs
