Work examples


Consulting means that we help people collectively design and do their work.

We do not own the work, we inspire the work. 


My experience working with Nicole has been that she is an endless resource of creativity, generosity, and positive energy. No matter the area of need, or what complexity may arise, Nicole will have solid strategy and

ideas on how to address it! This comes from a place of being deeply grounded. She is a beautiful spirit and an unapologetic warrior for justice. Her passion is people, and she has a unique ability to connect, challenge, empower and defend all of us on our path to become our more enlightened selves.

Nicole has distinguished herself in the field of advocacy as both a friend and colleague. Her creative energy, fueled by a deep well of intellectual curiosity, makes her an excellent collaborator and fierce advocate. I am impressed by Nicole’s ability to think holistically, always seeking to elevate marginalized perspectives and question taken-for-granted assumptions in her work. Nicole gets to the core issues and holds an unwavering dedication to social justice. It is a pleasure to work with her!

Nicole was a fantastic facilitator and has such a skill to be able to evoke multiple voices and energize colleagues about the work. Nicole is extremely organized and fully prepared us ahead of time for each monthly meeting, where she would lead structured activities that helped us work towards our goals. Nicole provided direction, guidance, technical support, and a safe space for professionals from multiple disciplines to come together to discuss issues related to services and justice for victims. Thanks Nicole for making each of us feel welcome and heard, and for your energetic and inclusive leadership.

Nicole's facilitation... allowed me to bear witness to what makes Nicole shine: an unwavering ability to get people to focus on the real issues, willingness to ask tough questions, and ability to knit together professionals who have historically had challenged relationships. I won't ever forget the optimism that Nicole's work instilled in me. I hope I have the opportunity to work alongside her again

Nicole is one of the most passionate professionals I have met... I am still in awe by how easily she facilitates any group full of professionals from various backgrounds (advocates, attorney, law enforcement, and more). Her great facilitation skills may be due to her strong ability to communicate with any group, her open-mindedness, her amazing active listening skills, her ability to remain neutral, and her organizational skills.
