"I cannot recommend Nicole highly enough. She is extremely bright, capable, and a real pleasure to work with. Nicole is an excellent facilitator and coordinator, leading the integration of a lot of disparate tools and materials into [EDF's] Fisheries Toolkit, which is used by fishery practitioners all over the world to increase food production and profits from their fisheries while improving their conservation performance... She has that rare combination of intelligence, competence, warmth, and good humor that made her a highly valued staffer and a wonderful team player."

"Nicole's expertise has fundamentally changed the way I view complex problem solving. Since she introduced me to the concept of user centered design, I can't help but see it's utility everywhere. She is thoughtful in her approach and thorough in her execution. She also happens to be a lot of fun to work with."
