After shadowing an immigration attorney in college, she knew she had found her passion.  She went to Georgia State University College of Law with the goal of becoming an immigration attorney.  During law school all of her internships were focused on preparing her to practice immigration law, including interning at the Atlanta Immigration Court, Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), the Southern Poverty Law Center–Immigrant Justice Project, Catholic Charities–Atlanta, and the Latin American Association.


In 2012, Nicole was one of approximately 50 people across the country to be named as an Equal Justice Works Fellow. She completed her fellowship at Catholic Charities–Atlanta where she provided legal representation to immigrant victims of crime, trafficking, and domestic violence. As part of her fellowship, she provided training to local law enforcement officers on the U visa certification.


Outside of her work, Nicole enjoys spending time with her kids, hiking, and backpacking. She and her husband hope to one day complete the Appalachian Trail.
