Nicole first went out for the wrestling team at Warren High School in 2004. She had come off a season on the football team thinking football was the hardest sport the high school had to offer. The former captain of the wrestling team asked her one day “why do you play football?” Her response that it was hard prompted an intro to the sport of wrestling, and she ended up on the wrestling team that season.

She had two years of wrestling experience in high school, now she is wrestling at Cerritos College where she is hoping to break the lineup. She is a biology/journalism major and hopes to someday write for National Geographic.
