Most will know her as their local GP, but what they may not know is that as well as knowing her cough from her croup, Nicole is a nature lover at her core, an avid hiker who loves nothing more than stepping away from the clinic and adventuring in the great outdoors. She is also an amateur-turned-respected landscape photographer who has a passion for all living things. You can find some of her works on display at the Nut Cafe in Stanley.
As a way of lifestyle, she spent five years training for and competing in ironman events. Focusing that determination elsewhere in recent years, she has recently become the recipient of a parchment showing she is a Fellow of the Academy of Wilderness Medicine, one of 517 worldwide.
To achieve the feat Nicole has volunteered with the State Emergency Service’s north west Search and Rescue Unit, Landcare expeditions and mission work in South Africa and the Solomon Islands.
Closer to home she has given her time and knowledge in the Bob Brown Foundation’s Tarkine in Motion and Bio Blitz events, and the Tarkine Trails book, helping guide visitors through the new terrain.
