Nicole has led (or co-founded) a total of 8 mission-driven companies, including global startups such as Leaders on Purpose and One Earth Designs, and has managed programs that have collectively reached thousands of executives and entrepreneurs around the world. Most recently, she has held leadership positions at Impact Hub Boulder, Techstars Boulder, and Harvard University's Executive Education for Sustainability Leadership. What she loves most in the world is creating sustainable business models for companies that seek to move the needle in their industry, ultimately bringing people and planet into deeper harmony through conscious business.
When she's not creating business strategy or running operations, she is a Reiki Master in Boulder, CO, an urban permaculture farmer, and a facilitator of global mastermind groups for fellow conscious entrepreneurs. She joined the Conscious Dying Institute because of her own calling to support more positive beliefs about death and dying, after having a profoundly meaningful and beautiful experience with her grandmother, Helen, passing in 2012. As COO, Nicole is ultimately responsible for designing and supporting the operational and human systems of CDI that make this mission-based work possible. She passionately leads CDI in its financial performance, systems and operations, and strategic planning.
