- Take Action
Director of Education
Nicole leads all educational initiatives at The Center, including K-12, university and lifelong learning. A public historian with more than 10 years of museum experience, her primary focus has been around the interpretation of enslavement at historic sites and museums. She has facilitated workshops and training sessions on best practices around the interpretation of slavery and how race and identity impact visitor learning, with a focus on bridging the gap between first and third person interpretation for all age groups.
Currently, Nicole serves on the board of directors for the National Council on Public History and The Slave Dwelling Project and is an active member of the American Association for State and Local History. Her publications include chapters for Interpreting Slavery and Interpreting the Civil War for Museums & Historic Sites, as well as the forthcoming Radical Roots: Public History and Social Justice Activism.
Nicole is a proud Charlotte 49er, getting both her undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. When she’s not working she loves cooking for family and friends, gardening and taking road trips.
