Nichole graduated with an Associate of Arts degree from St Cloud State University. After 2 years of school, she took a year off and worked at a horse stable. She then decided to go back to school for veterinary medicine, and since she has always been an animal lover, she attended and graduated from Argosy University with an Associate of Applied Science degree in veterinary technology. Nichole has now been in the business for 20 years and counting. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, and traveling. Her fiancé is a farmer and she has 5 barn cats (or 5 indoor cats that live outside, as her fiancé says).
