Nicole has always been an avid gym goer and athlete and first tried barre in 2012 at LavaBarre's original studio in Clarendon after she got bored with other workouts, and instantly loved it. Having attended many fitness classes in the past and thinking that one day she might like to try teaching, Nicole saw becoming a barre instructor as a personal challenge and an opportunity to go outside her comfort zone while perfecting technique and become an integral part of a fitness community. Outside of the barre studio, Nicole works in the global health field and regularly volunteers with the Make-a-Wish Foundation and Engineers Without Borders. She is originally from New Hampshire and has been living in Arlington since 2008.
