Hi! I'm Nichole.

— I'm a designer with 5+ years professional experience designing for social impact within the sectors of government, nonprofits, and social enterprises.

As a Design Fellow at Blue Ridge Labs @ Robin Hood Foundation, I co-founded Turnstyle, a research and design studio focused on improving the client experience of asking for help and accessing resources in human services.

Currently, I am also working with the Service Design Studio at the Mayor's Office of Economic Opportunity (NYC Opportunity) to make public services as effective and accessible as possible for all New Yorkers.

Previously, I led the website redesign for Safe Horizon, led creative efforts for an education nonprofit based in Honduras, and served as an AmeriCorps VISTA in Oakland. With traditional agency experience, I have also worked with commercial global brands like CrossFit and Nokia.
