Nicole started playing the game of volleyball her freshman year of high school at Murrieta Mesa. After trying out as a freshman she knew it was something that she would want to pursue, she played club that next season and it confirmed this was something she was going to jump into (literally). Next year making Varsity, as a starting middle, Nicole obtained the Pride Award and honorable mention. The years following switched positions to right-side and outside, making her an all-around player. She has vast knowledge about all attacking positions, and believes it is a huge benefit to be a diverse player.
After playing four years of high school and club she decided she wanted to stay local and attend a very competitive JC program at Grossmont that was ran by former D1 Idaho State coach. The team went 23-0 in league (including pre-season) later going on to the state championships where the team got 3rd in state. She also played beach for Grossmont which took the state championship title as well.
After the first year at Grossmont she had excelled dramatically as a player and academically maintaining a 3.85 GPA while enrolled in 24 units first semester and 32 units second (dual enrollment). She had several opportunities to move on to other schools but chose to start her career in her family business of Real Estate.
She has been a full time real estate agent for 3 years now working all over the inland empire. Is now one of the top producing agents in Riverside County under 25.
She still plays volleyball in adult leagues, tournaments, and beach. Still has a burning passion for the game which will come through in her coaching and desire for her players to succeed.
Nicole is very excited to help develop players into the best player they can be and is looking forward to her second season here coaching at Forza1. In 2018/2019 she assisted on then 14 National team and helps run our Beach Program.
