Data Systems Administrator
Organized. Motivated. Resourceful.
Nicole oversees the design, implementation and management of the central programs and participant database, ensuring connections with financial management, timekeeping and member recruitment systems. She geeks out about building reports to increase data accessibility across the organization. She served as an AmeriCorps field crew member and leader with the Corps from 2009-2010, became the administrative associate in 2011, assistant program manager for Youth Outdoors in 2012, operations specialist for youth and placement programs in 2014, and came into her current role in 2017.
She holds a bachelor's degree in German and Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, including a year of study at Albert Ludwig Universität in Freiburg, Germany. Nicole excels at planning, systems thinking, data management, communication and working to increase efficiencies. She has served on Sprockets (Saint Paul's Out of School Time Network) Community Advisory Council since the fall of 2014 and sat on their Driven by Data task group in the spring of 2018. Nicole presented on Integrated Data Systems at The Corps Network's annual conference in 2018.
Nicole's favorite parts of working for the Corps are the chances to get outside and the cyclical nature of a program year. One day almost never looks like the next, and that variety keeps things interesting. Outside of work, Nicole enjoys reading, hiking, gardening, cooking and traveling.
