During this time she felt called by God for the ministry and answered that call in 2014 when she was accepted to Moravian Seminary. She graduated in 2018 with her Master of Divinity degree with a 4.0 grade point average.
Nicole and her husband, Christopher, a CPA at Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital, have been married for 14 years. They have two children: Kylee age 11 and Gavin age 8.
