Born and raised in Grand Rapids, improving the community has long been a passion of Nichole’s. After obtaining a degree in education from College of Saint Benedict, Nichole began as an educator in Central MN and from there to the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area to pursue a career in customer implementation and corporate training. Along the way, Nichole received her master’s degree in Educational Leadership from St. Mary’s University. Nichole’s background in training, technology, education, communication, and project management makes her uniquely positioned to serve stakeholders at IEDC.
Nichole moved back to Grand Rapids in 2010 to raise her family and enjoy all that Itasca County has to offer. With interests in volunteering, youth sports, and her many hobbies in the community, Nichole is often visible around town. She also loves to take advantage of the specialty businesses available to us in our community from local breweries and restaurants to unique furniture and lifestyle shops.
Nichole is excited to partner with IEDC and local entrepreneurs to showcase businesses that grow and thrive in northern Minnesota.
