Nicole also managed and co-developed the business of Saltwater Sessions, an integrative program combining mindfulness and surfing for the treatment of addiction and mental illness.
Nicole is dedicated to bringing mindfulness into the workplace and daily life for those she partners with. She is passionate about working with corporate clients to define and implement their core values into their internal and external business strategies, while improving office cultures and behaviors using non-conventional methods like mindfulness and compassion.
Nicole has over ten years experience in the music industry working for high-profile brands and corporations; developing, managing and fostering talent, consulting for profit and non-profit start ups and lifestyle brands on their identity, branding and marketing strategy. She has worked with large corporations, boutique organizations including Universal Music Publishing Group and Geffen Records, with Multi-Platinum Record Producer Ron Fair, as well as artists such as Pussycat Dolls, Mary J. Blige, System of a Down, Deftones, Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, and hit-making songwriters in Nashville, Tennessee. During her own entrepreneurial venture, she developed an independent band from Nashville on all fronts from grassroots to garnering several rotations and support from NPR’s KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic with Jason Bentley.
By learning transformative foundations in compassion, gentleness and mindfulness, Nicole transitioned her long time career in music into wellness by walking along side people to help them find healing through mindfulness and the sea and the parallels of the two.
