Nothing makes me happier than helping people. Making other people feel better whether it’s physically, mentally, or emotionally is what I strive to do with each day. I was born in the Tampa Bay area but I grew up all over the world, due to the fact that my parents are active duty military. We lived in 3 different countries and traveled to countless others. I was able to work with and learn from children of many different backgrounds, while growing up overseas.
I obtained my bachelor’s degree in general psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park. I took multiple classes that focused on child psychopathology and development. While in college, I was part of a student study and campaign that opposed the use of Adderall, a drug prescribed for ADHD. Our results are now used on campus to make students more aware of the effects of using Adderall. I worked as a nanny through high school and college, as well as working in the customer service industry for 6 years.
I am a fiancé to Chris Rovnak, I am a dog-mom, I love to make diy crafts, and I volunteer as part of my church’s technical and social media team. I am excited to help change lives and to be a part of the team at Brain Balance.
Brain Balance is proud and pleased to have Nicole on our team. She is extremely kind and considerate. Nicole naturally connects with children and exhibits great patients with them, she is always looking to learn more and to be the most effective program director she can be.
