Nicole has been a Texas State Chair for Young Americans for Liberty, a Campus Coordinator for Students for Liberty, the Texas Campus Manager for Our American Initiative. Nicole was the top Field Associate for Americans for Prosperity in Texas in the spring and summer of 2015, and a Field Representative in Central and Northern California for The Leadership Institute.
“Atlas Shrugged completely changed my life and I would not be where I am today without that book. If I can persuade more students to pick up Ayn Rand’s novels, to dive into her philosophy, I truly believe it will impact their lives for the better.”
