Nicole earned her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology from Marquette University and her master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from Colorado State University. She is passionate about the occupation of play, and she enjoys brainstorming fun and creative activities to motivate your child during therapy. Nicole is trained and certified in the SOS Approach to Feeding and loves helping kids and their families develop a positive relationship with food. Outside of work, Nicole always makes an effort to get involved with the local community through volunteering. Most recently, she helped neurodiverse and neurotypical kids participate together in an extracurricular run club. She also advocated for the role of OT in a student-run primary care clinic, and presented about her experience at the Occupational Therapy Association of Colorado annual conference. Nicole is excited to help bring CI therapies to the Wausau area and is looking forward to growing alongside children and their families. In her free time you will find her exploring the great outdoors (hiking, camping, running, skiing, etc.), testing out new recipes in the kitchen, and enjoying the company of friends and family.
