Nicole began her cheer career at the age of 4 when she dressed for halloween as a UCLA Bruins cheerleader. From this point on, it was all about cheer. She started out with YCOA as a cheerleader on the newly formed Arrowhead Scorpions. She cheered with YCOA for 6 years going to nationals multiple times. Eventually, after one year of high school cheer, Nicole moved to competitive cheer however she did not leave behind YCOA. The year following her departure from YCOA as a cheerleader, she returned as an assistant coach for the Arrowhead Scorpions working under the direction of Tiffany Martin. During this time, the Arrowhead Scorpions not only attended nationals but, they won their division. During her competitive cheer days she has cheered for AZ Thunder and AZ Power and California AllStars. Nicole graduated from Mountain Ridge High School in 2015.
