The newest addition to the Chamber staff, Nicole joined us in September 2018 as the Marketing Coordinator. She is responsible for all our printed publications including the Chamber Directory, Business Link, Chamber Packet and Press Releases for local news publications. She also manages our social media accounts and our website. Nicole can be heard on various local radio stations on your morning commute to work talking about the latest Chamber events and news.
You can usually find her with a camera in hand documenting all our chamber events such as Business After Fives, Ribbon Cuttings, First Friday Luncheons and every event in between.
Nicole has a BA in Hospitality Administration from Stephen F. Austin State University. Her passion for the hospitality industry took her all the way over to Belgium, where she started a coffee shop and bakery that her and her husband ran for 4 years before returning to Texas to be closer to family. Living in Belgium, allowed her the opportunity to travel all over Europe. She has favorite things about each place she has visited but has found there is no place like home.
Currently learning to play the guitar with her youngest son, she hopes to start Cello lessons soon.
In her spare time, she loves to look through cookbooks, practice food photography and create recipes of her own. She considers herself to be a pretty good cook and loves to cook for family and friends. Entertaining is one of her favorite things to do and the more people she has around her table, the happier she is.
She is married to Darrell and they have 2 sons, Blake and Landon.
