Nicole was working as a scientist in Boston when she took her first aerial class in 2011. She was instantly hooked and began plotting to run away and join the circus. In July 2015 she was admitted into Esh Circus Arts Professional Preparatory Program. Nicole graduated from the program in 2017 after majoring in aerial rope. From there she was accepted into the New England Center for Circus Arts Protrack Program. Without hesitation she quit her job and moved herself, her husband, dog, and two cats to Vermont. She spent the next two fabulous years training circus full time under NECCA’s world class coaches. Nicole graduated in June 2019 with a major in aerial rope and minor in cyr wheel. She has since moved to Denver and currently teaches aerial/cyr wheel at several local studios. Nicole is also a company member of the aerial dance group In the Wings.
