Nicole received her BFA in graphic design from Iowa State University (Go Cyclones!) in 2009. For the next seven years, she was a designer for a small branding and marketing firm in Des Moines, working with clients across the country. Nicole joined AGENCY for the 2016 election cycle and, after a short break, returned for the 2018 election cycle where she produced award-winning designs for clients up and down the ballot.
Outside of work, Nicole enjoys walking her doodle pups around the trails of central Iowa, where she grew up and where she and her husband are raising their family. Nicole is also attempting to visit all 50 states with her husband and kids before they head to college (and occasionally they actually take the trip they plan!). Outside of travel, Nicole’s other passions include true crime podcasts, knitting, and reading.
Nicole’s life hack: “I like to use short, guided meditations to help focus on what I need for the upcoming day or to give myself a boost mid-project. I always feel more settled and centered moving forward.”
