  • As a lover of skin care, Nicole has succumbed to #TikTokMadeMeTryIt trends more times than she could count. If you're on the fence about buying a viral face cream, ask her and she can probably supply you with a detailed review.
  • Before she even thought about writing for a living, she ran an Angie's List-esque lifestyle blog on Tumblr, where she recommended skin care products, shows and movies, and other interesting finds to an audience of over 5,000.
  • Nicole has unabashedly watched every episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashian three separate times and has built an impressive brain bank of facts about all things Kardashian-Jenner.


Nicole discovered that she had a knack for writing when the poem she wrote for the school magazine in 3rd grade turned out to be a haiku. Since then, she resolved to become a professional wordsmith, stringing words together to tell a compelling story. Her career started in social media where she had her fun crafting witty tweets and Instagram posts and then shifted to tech where she worked as a project manager and produced more briefs than she knew what to do with. But she later realized that storytelling is where her true passion lies and decided to shift to writing full-time. Over the years, she worked on various projects that enabled her to write nearly every type of content, from greeting cards to blogs to listicles to advertorials. But she found that her best writing comes out when she's doling out the latest Kardashian news or suggesting what moisturizer to pick up at Sephora.


Nicole holds a bachelor's degree in organizational communication from De La Salle University, where she was part of the dean's list for several trimesters. For her thesis and internship, she helped create social media and direct mail campaigns for Make-A-Wish Foundation to help more kids get their wishes granted.
