After freelancing in California for over seven years, the south called her back. She received her MFA in Acting from the University of Florida in May, 2011. Go Gators.
For the next six years, Nichole retained the nomadic life pursuing theatre opportunities in NYC, MA, FL, GA, TN, NC, and beyond - but always plotting how to get into the Roller Derby.
