A Norfolk native, Nicole dabbled in many sports growing up, finally finding her passion for running. She has competed in countless races over the last 18 years, including 25 half marathons and the Marine Corps Marathon. However, as she approached her forties, she realized that strength training was a critical missing component in her exercise routine.
After joining Iron Maidens Fitness as a client, and experiencing her own transformation, Nicole was inspired to take on a new challenge and became a certified AFAA group fitness instructor. Finding a new passion in motivating other women and helping them achieve results, she loves to create challenging classes mixed with high-energy music and motivation!
Nicole works full-time as the Director of Development at Norfolk Collegiate. She is an avid community volunteer and has coached “Girls on the Run” since 2014. In 2015, Nicole was recognized by Inside Business as a “Top 40 Under 40” young professional. She is a lifelong Hampton Roads resident and is a proud “Running Etc. Ambassador” for our local running store. She spends her free time creating memories with her husband and 5-year-old son.
