Nicole is a second-year MSW student at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work. She is concentrating in Family Systems and working toward her Human-Animal-Environment Interactions in Social Work certificate. 


Nicole grew up in New Jersey and animals have always had a strong influence in her life; she rode horses as a child and cared for them in her teens as a barn hand and trail guide. Nicole earned her BS in Animal Science with minors in Equine Science and Teacher Education from Rutgers University where she raised two Seeing Eye puppies. After graduation, Nicole spent 15 years in her first career as a Guide Dog Mobility Instructor at The Seeing Eye. Her passion for mental health and intergenerational healing led her to Colorado and back to horses. 


Nicole has experienced and witnessed the powerful connection and healing that is possible when in relationship with animals and she aims to facilitate this connection in her therapy work. Horses offer opportunities for presence, awareness, and relational lessons in a unique and meaningful way that Nicole is so excited to be a part of at Medicine Horse.
