With Nicole’s experiences means she is familiar with how large businesses as well as education organisations operate, the systems they employ and the relationship dynamics these environments can involve. She has always found herself intensely interested in these dynamics and how communication can break down conflict as it arises, hence the decision to pursue a career in ADR.

Further, Nicole’s work and study experiences abroad has provided her with confidence in her ability to adapt and connect with people from a wide variety of backgrounds.
