A Labor and Delivery, Newborn and Postpartum nurse with over a decade of experience, Nicole found a need in the community for a more family-focused approach to welcoming a new baby into the world. She is thrilled to concentrate on education as the founder of Main Line Family Education. Her warm personality coupled with a deep understanding of pregnancy, delivery, and infant care, will provide families with the tools and knowledge they need to manage the journey through parenthood in the most positive way.
Nicole graduated from The Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from the University of Pennsylvania. She then went on to study Nursing at Drexel University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree. She was recognized for academic excellence by Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing.
Immediately after graduating, Nicole worked at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia, focusing her nursing care on postpartum mothers and their newborns. She then joined Main Line Health, where she worked at Paoli Hospital in Labor and Delivery for more than ten years.
After giving birth to her own children and struggling with breastfeeding, Nicole knew that she wanted to expand her nursing practice. She earned her certification in Breastfeeding Counseling (CBC) and worked as a Lactation Support Specialist for mother/baby couplets in the immediate postpartum hospital setting. She is a member of the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) and is a Certified Childbirth Educator (CCE).
