Nicole moved to Ecuador in the summer of 2009. She and her family are from Northern Ireland, UK but she has lived in Ecuador since the age of 7. She lived in Cuenca for 8 years before moving to the coast in 2017. She has completed the majority of her schooling in Spanish and is fully bilingual.

After graduating high school she began working with other foreigners, helping them with translations and sharing her knowledge of the country. She feels lucky to say that she is part of a wonderful community in San Clemente, Manabi with a great job continuing to help expats transitioning to a slower paced life here in Ecuador.
