Quickly recognizing her passion for this type of work, she pursued opportunities to build her skills and knowledge.

After graduating from California State University Fullerton with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration, Nicole continued to pursue her passion for nonprofit work by becoming a program coordinator for the Cal State Fullerton Philanthropic Foundation and University Advancement.
