Nicole Ripley
Program Coordinator
Brief info

Nicole grew up in Tacoma, Washington, in a family with 4 girls. It was there that she discovered her passion for working with teens, which led to her studying Social Work in college. She interned at a high school counseling office, worked in a residential home, and was a field guide in a wilderness therapy program. After receiving her Bachelors degree, Nicole became a mentor for young adult women who were navigating new life experiences and difficulties.

She plans to go back to school and earn a Masters Degree in Social Work so she can further her work with youth in therapeutic settings.

She enjoys being outdoors, reading a good book, country swing dancing, and simply being around people. When not at work Nicole is always looking for ways to keep busy and meet new people.
