Pastor Nicole grew up in Watertown, SD in a family of 6. She attended Dakota Wesleyan University and graduated in 2012 with an [accidental] double-major in Theatre and Religion/Philosophy. After undergraduate, Pastor Nicole took a year off from schooling before attending seminary in Chicago, Illinois. She attended Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and loved being a part of the culture of Chicago. Her three years there taught her so much more about the radically inclusive Gospel of Jesus Christ and equipped her with tools to bring about justice for all of God's people. 

She has a female cat name Charlie, loves coffee and Jesus, enjoys summer camp and being outdoors, crafting and cooking, and enjoys finding creative solutions to problems.

Pastor Nicole is excited to be serving the only Reconciling United Methodist Church in the Dakotas Annual Conference and connecting people to the wonderful love and grace of God.
