Hi! I’m Nicole, and I want to write things for you.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a writer. While other kids in my preschool aspired to be cowboys and princesses, I proudly proclaimed that I would be “an author” and write best-selling books. I have yet to achieve bestseller status (or even book author status, for that matter), but I have managed to make a living doing what I love.

Armed with a bachelor’s degree in Media, Culture and Communication from New York University, I became a journalist. I started my career writing about food and cooking, then transitioned to covering small business, leadership and careers for Business News Daily a year later. I served as the site’s Managing Editor until January 2018, and now work on the production team for Business News Daily and its sister site Business.com.

I’ve also been a freelance writer since 2010, with bylines appearing on Huffington Post, Mashable, Yahoo!, Fox Small Business, Muck Rack, Ragan/PR Daily, and The Write Life.

I currently offer content creation and copyediting services through my LLC, Lightning Media Partners. I specialize in content for small businesses and PR firms, including press releases, blog posts, website copywriting, case studies, and more. Learn more about my availability and work here.
