Nicole was born and raised in Durango. In 2001, she moved away to pursue college in a “bigger” city. As it turns out, bigger was not necessarily better for her and she found her way back home. Nicole met her husband in 2008 and they settled into the Durango lifestyle … packing it all in on the weekends and spending as much time outdoors as possible … camping, fishing, hiking, and mountain biking. In 2011, their daughter was born and in 2015, they welcomed their son. The family of five (they have a sweet 12 year old dog) enjoy the occasional camping adventure to Canyonlands or just an weekend adventure fishing or hiking out their back door!
