Director of Membership
As the Director of Membership, Nicole focuses on membership development and retention. She wants to make sure that you are aware of what your membership with the Chamber entails. If you are an investor and would like a personal visit to discuss ways to maximize your membership or what it is exactly that the Chamber does to support your business in Angelina County, she is happy to talk to you. Nicole is also responsible for managing the Chamber's Sponsorships. If you are interested in sponsoring an event or program through the Chamber, she would love to help you find the right sponsorship for your business.
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.
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.
As a previous business owner, Nicole is passionate about local businesses succeeding. Please call or email her to schedule a visit.
