Nicole was born and raised in Snohomish. She moved to Bellingham to complete her undergraduate studies at Western Washington University, and then returned to her home town. Nicole enjoys many outdoors activities including, soccer, snowboarding, and hiking. She rescued her dog Maya, a boxer/lab mix, from a shelter in Moses Lake in the summer of 2008. After trying other training methods with no success for this hyper pup, Nicole joined Got Sit. She was astounded by the results and now has a happy and under control dog. In 2013 Nicole became a trainer with Got Sit and is enjoying bringing effective training to other dog owners.
