Born in the Hudson Valley, Nicole grew up in Beacon, where she met her husband Robert. They purchased a home next door to her parents, in which they raised their two daughters and continue to reside. Nicole worked for an artist in a studio on Main Street during a time when storefronts were empty and the streets were barren. Over the years, she watched the transformation of Beacon take place from Main Street to Groveville Mills, which she has managed for the past ten years, and appreciates the positive changes attributable to all the visionaries. She is thrilled with what Beacon has become and looks forward to what the future has in store. Nicole loves to travel but is always grateful to come home to Beacon and the Hudson Valley.
