Biography

Niccole has enjoyed the field of early childhood for many years. As a former FSU student, she majored in Early Childhood Education and studied the Spanish language (including a study abroad trip to Costa Rica) during her undergraduate and applied her coursework for the Master's of Science in Career and Technical Education to her position as an early childhood classroom teacher at FSU's Early Learning Center. Niccole completed her doctoral degree in Educational Leadership at Central Michigan University, where she also worked as a graduate research assistant and was an active recipient of the King-Chávez-Parks Future Faculty Fellowship. Niccole has also enjoyed establishing relationships with the greater Big Rapids community. With her passion for athletics, the former bulldog cheerleader served as a volunteer coach for the Big Rapids Rocket Football and Cheerleading program which led to the development of a varsity cheerleading program within the Big Rapids High School. Through the support of Big Rapids Public Schools in partnership with the City of Big Rapids, Niccole helped to develop a youth gymnastics program that continues to serve the community. Beyond teaching and coaching, Niccole has served in many other professional capacities. She has a big place in her heart for Ferris State University and a special love for young children.
