Nicole is highly collaborative and thoroughly enjoys working with teams (students, parents, teachers, counsellors administrators and educational assistants) in providing the best therapy possible for her students and clients. Given that she works in various elementary and secondary schools, she knows the importance of working as a member of a well functioning team. She is also very familiar with the grade level expectations at the varying grade levels from K-12. She firmly believes that being an effective communicator directly relates to one’s quality of life.
