Dr. Nicole knew from a young age that she wanted to be a veterinarian. During high school, she began working for Dr. Jill as an assistant. Working at Veterinary Services only strengthened her desire to pursue Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Nicole received her bachelor degree in Animal Sciences from Purdue University. After graduation, she packed her bags for the beautiful island of St. Kitts to attend Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. Although 3 years of island life was amazing, Nicole was happy to head back to her alma mater, Purdue, for her clinical year of vet school. She started her dream job back “home” at Veterinary Services with her remarkable mentor and friend, Dr. Jill, in February of 2010. Dr. Nicole and her husband, Ryan, have two very busy boys, a dog and a cat. In her free time, she loves spending time with her family, is involved with her church and loves visiting the Ft Wayne Children’s Zoo.
