Born and raised in Tennessee, Nicole moved out to Los Angeles to pursue a career in TV, with her eyes specifically set on live sports television.  However, she quickly shifted gears to the new genre of unscripted that was in its infancy at the time.  Now with over two decades in the industry and over 70+ shows under her belt, Nicole has worked on just about every unscripted sub-genre under the sun – house reality, docus, game shows, competitions, occu-soaps, live, food, formatted, renovation, dating…you name it.

She started her time at 51 Minds, as an assistant when the company was first created. Working her way up, she then came to run the Development and Current department for 6 years as the company exploded with growth during the celebreality heyday. Stepping away from her corporate role, she then spent 7 years in the field gaining further freelance producing experience. In 2018 she returned to a corporate role at 51 Minds to take the helm of the Current Department once again.  Since being back she has overseen shows across streamers (Netflix, Hulu, Max, Paramount+, Roku, etc) and linear networks (Bravo, MTV, HGTV, Food, A&E, Own, and more) as she pursues her goal of making quality programming with amazing partners.
