Nicole joined the Atlas Corps team in January 2017. As the Partnerships Associate, she is responsible for recruiting and advising prospective Host Organizations as they consider, select, and support Fellows. Nicole graduated with a BSFS in Culture and Politics from Georgetown University where she was heavily involved in community service organizations both on and off campus. Her passion for international development and social justice led her to spend three and a half years serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in South Africa. She spent her first two years teaching English classes and coordinating a variety of health and fitness projects in a rural community. She then spent her third year in Cape Town with Grassroot Soccer where she was a member of the global partnerships team that facilitated sustainable sports for development trainings for partner organizations across the African continent.
