Nichole is an athlete at heart. She has always playing, coaching and more recently developing new athletic opportunities to bring the benefit of movement to less privileged youth. To this day her favorite sport to play is basketball…yup you got that right…a short, white Michael Jordan!
She earned an athletic scholarship to play field hockey at Boston College where she developed her love for long distance running. After watching the Boston Marathon from BC, she decided it was her dream to run it. After qualifying as a senior in college at the Walt Disney World Marathon in January of 2001 she was hooked. She ran nine Boston Marathons in a row between 2001 to 2009, with her best time of 3:08 in her 9th Boston in 2009.
She is the founder of Balanced Centered Athletes that aims to unveil the fullest human potential within each of its students. Her programming is designed to teach and guide each participant to unveil his and her greatest mental and physical potential by maximizing the mind-body connection.
