Nicole (she/her) joined Wild Abundance in the spring of 2022. She moved from Minnesota– where she was a civil engineer and project manager– with her family in 2020. In 2021, she received her Permaculture Design Certificate online from Earth Activist Training and became re-energized as she contemplated delivering projects that better modeled nature’s ecosystems for building community, health and resilience. As she navigates this career pivot, she has been grateful to serve Wild Abundance. Nicole’s experience in the Wildcrafting and Medicine Making Intensive in 2021 left such an impression on her that she wanted to be part of the team. In addition to contributing to her family and community, she finds passion being outdoors, among the elements and the plants. Nicole also enjoys playing in the kitchen, especially with medicine making.
