A gifted communicator she has the ability to inspire people of different ages, cultures and walks of life, motivating them to a life of purpose and impact. Her ministry is characterised by warmth, vibrancy, tenacity and her passion is for issues of justice.
Nicole’s zany perspective on life has her continually questioning and challenging the boundaries of human limitations in faith, knowledge and the practical expression of love towards others.

She finds great joy in reading history books of all sorts, ruminating on spiritual matters, walking in places that are not crowded by people, digging mysterious plants into her garden, drinking too much coffee and doing her tiny part in making the world a kinder place.
