Nicole, along with 39 other influential up-and-coming business leaders and community trailblazers, was recognized for not only her career success, but also for her deep-rooted commitment to helping her community.

40 Under 40 acknowledges 40 up-and-coming business leaders under the age of 40 who are having a major impact on the local business community through their careers, while leaving a positive mark on the greater community. The Phoenix Business Journal has featured the Class of 2016 in a special publication celebrating the accomplishments of all 40 members of this prestigious group.

Out of more than 400 nominations received by the Phoenix Business Journal, the 34-year-old mother of two and vice president at Lovitt & Touché,  was selected for her drive, determination and integrity, as well as the numerous organizations she supports, including helping Make-A-Wish of Arizona provide life-changing experiences for critically and chronically ill children and the University of Arizona Phoenix Alumni Chapter, which gives more than $100,000 in scholarships to UA-bound high school students in Maricopa County.

One of her most notable professional accomplishments is forming the Women’s Networking Group, an association of high-level business women whose mission is to make a marked difference in the community. With her own mentor Nicole Stanton, one of the most admired and influential women in the Valley, providing support, Nicole is also jump starting a Women’s Leadership group, that is poised to become one of the foremost women-led social organizations in the state.
