Upon graduating in 2005 magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in speech communications, Nicole entered and won the Miss Pennsylvania 2005 competition. This sent her on her way to the Miss America pageant in 2006, where she made it down to the final ten contestants, but ultimately lost to Miss Oklahoma, Jennifer Berry. This minor setback, however, had no affect on Nicole's journalistic career. Before joining CBS 3 and The CW Philly’s Eyewitness News team in 2008, she was a featured reporter and producer for PBS's Tempo at WLVT station in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Her biggest accomplishment was co-writing and producing “Kids and Gangs: A Tempo Special Report,” which won her a 2008 Mid-Atlantic Emmy Award.
