Growing up in the suburbs of Long Island, New York, she fell in love with journalism during her childhood years, watching Roz Abrams on WABC-TV’s Eyewitness News broadcast every weekday afternoon. It was Abrams’ ability to tell stories in an intriguing and sophisticated manor, in addition to her African American ethnicity, that fascinated Nicole. Since then, she has embarked on a progressing and rewarding journey as a producer and writer, with a desire to tell pioneering stories in a relatable, creative, and affecting way.
