A former teen mother who put herself through the College of William & Mary with her three-month old daughter in tow, Nicole now works every day to change the statistic that less than 2% of teen mothers will earn their degrees before age 30. Nicole has been featured on major news outlets including “Good Morning America,” CNN, “NBC Nightly News,” and The Washington Post.  Nicole also serves as an Ascend National Advisor with the Aspen Institute and a nationally known author and speaker. Her next, highly-anticipated book, Pregnant Girl, will be released in May 2021 by Beacon Press.
