Speaker

Nicole offers Keynote Speaking and Workshop trainings for urban educators and mental health professionals serving urban students K-12. The mission of her work is to raise awareness, and teach educators how to better serve urban students impacted by adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma. 

Nicole’s talk with students will teach and inspire those that are impacted by ACEs using a personal narrative. She tells her story of being poor in North Philly, witnessing her parents domestic abuse, being neglected, and suffering through her mom’s depression which ended in sucide. With her engaging, down-to-earth approach, she instills hope in students by sharing her victory of overcoming trauma and her mission to serve inner-city youth. She also introduces the students to ACEs and its effects on mental health. She closes the talk by giving the students practical tips they can use when they are feeling overwhelmed with life.
