Program Development Specialist and Project Learning Tree State Coordinator
Nicole was a middle and high school science teacher in the rural Upper Peninsula and urban Florida for 10 years before starting with LEAF in 2013. She obtained her formal education at Northern Michigan University, including a B.S. in Biology/Ecology, a post-baccalaureate secondary teaching certificate, and an M.S. in Science Education.
Nicole came into her interest in forestry education as an extension of her childhood spent playing in the woods, and she loves her job because she gets to help teachers get their students outdoors. Nicole can be reached at
