Ms. Nicholson, who resides in the Athens GA area, is a compassionate leader with a proven record of success in start-ups and revitalizing organizations, empowering successful volunteer and employee teams, nurturing youth voices, creating positive public relations, grant writing, fundraising, cultivating relationships, and designing successful community change strategies.

She spent a decade in the private sector working in operations, training, and media, before having a life-changing experience as a volunteer that inspired her to leave the corporate world and dedicate the rest of her career to lifting others up in the non-profit sector. Since then, she has held leadership roles in instruction, disaster services, and drug prevention with an emphasis on community change.

Ms. Nicholson has a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (Regent University) and was a SURP scholar in educational psychology at the University of Georgia under the mentorship of distinguished professor Dr. Randy Kamphaus. She achieved recognition as a Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities, completed Master’s level courses in biblical theology (Regent University), and then completed ministry courses with a focus on care of creation (LIMEX Loyola University). Ms. Nicholson is currently a student in the 2022 Cohort of the Living School at the Center for Action and Contemplation. She holds certifications within the field of disability, instructional technology, and as an instructor of First Aid and CPR for cats and dogs. Ms. Nicholson adopted an ethical vegan lifestyle in 2008. Her interests include woodworking, stained glass projects, exercise, and hiking.
