Previously, she worked in customer success for Crescerance, a mobile app and website development company. There, she was responsible for managing community engagement products for independent, charter, and public school districts across the country. Nicole also worked at KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools where she conducted accountability reporting to the Georgia Department of Education and the KIPP Foundation and implemented online data and assessment products across the district.

Why are you in this work?

My familial background shaped my beliefs around the transformative power of education. I’m in this work to ensure students not only have access to high-quality education, but also have the skills to make a positive impact in their corner of the world.

Why ESG?

ESG is truly a mission-driven firm. We are personally invested in learners being successful in life and that commitment is illustrated in high quality deliverables and collaborative approaches to the work. I’m excited to contribute to the field as we build capacity in information systems and data analysis together.
