Nicole leads by example as a nationally recognized fitness and physique competitor in the Fitness America Pageant circuit. She began competing in April of 2003, at the Fitness Atlantic competition. Later in 2003, she debuted her first fitness routine at the Fitness New England.

Nicole is excited to debut her new routine at the 2005 Fitness Atlantic, her favorite venue of the year. She enjoys the creative process of preparing for competitions. She creates her own costume, music and choreography, and feels that the end product is a true expression of her self. This year's routine, entitled "Evolution of the Wild Woman Archetype," a metaphoric portrait of feminine identity (from the "raw" tribal image to the "seductive" femme fatale). She intends to compete at the Fitness Atlantic, Fitness New York, Fitness Universe, Fitness America, FAME New York, and FAME Toronto.
