Her passion is empowering people to be able to help others who are injured or sick. She fell on her feet when she was introduced to teaching REC as she can use her medical skills and life experience to teach people first aid who work or play in remote, challenging environments.
Nicole has 6 years experience in accident and emergency nursing in the UK. She then completed a course in Tropical Medicine in the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, which is an internationally recognised institution dedicated to research and teaching in this area.
