Nicole spent the first 21 years of her career in schools and this chapter confirmed for her the importance of meeting people where they are. Mentoring, supporting, and guiding students and colleagues along the path of figuring out who they are, learning from the successes and the struggles, and charting a path towards becoming their best self was an incredible honor. Nicole’s 17 years of school leadership experience created a first-hand perspective on the power of organizational cultures in fostering wellness or encouraging self-sacrifice, how burnout creeps into our lives, and how we get stuck in a pattern of neglecting ourselves to serve others. She is committed to transforming schools by facilitating a conversation about the connection between employee morale, turnover, and school culture by including burnout in this equation. Our most powerful blindspot is ourselves and, oftentimes, we are last on any priority list if we show up on it at all. Nicole is grateful to use those lesson-filled years in her work as a burnout prevention coach to partner with educators and school leaders flirting with burnout learn ways to nourish themselves so they lead within and beyond the classroom and across campus. Nicole’s clients are committed to playing big with an open heart, living their purpose, and striving to live full, vibrant lives. Let's flip the script on this so that what we offer to families, colleagues, and the communities we serve is the best version of ourselves rather than the exhausted and depleted one.Nicole is the founder of Root to Rise Coaching, an avid reader, yogi, cat-lover, and adventurous home cook who relocated to Eugene, Oregon summer of 2020.
