Nicole was brought into the world on June 22, 1989.  She was just the cutest baby. From the day she was born, her beautiful smile was contagious. Every time you laid eyes on her you had to smile too. As a child, she was full of energy, her unique laughter always filled the room.  Her personality was there from day one. She was very bright and always lots of fun. Everyone loved Nicki.

She grew up fast and quickly matured beyond her age.  She graduated with honors from Magruder High School in 2007, and left that year to attend Virginia Tech with her older brother, Chris. She loved softball, skiing, poker, hanging out with friends, reading, board and card games, tutoring, and helping others. Most of all she loved her friends and family. She was involved in so many things. It would be impossible to talk about them all in detail. However, this space wil attempt to touch on most of things that made her who she was, a role model for all young people.


Nicole had great drive and ambition. This shows in her record of academic achievements, extracurricular activities, and community service. Even with all this responsibility, she still found time to help others as a caring, loving friend, relative, and fun loving teenager. She was a truly amazing person.
