    Pigeon River Head Guide

Nicole has been with Nantahala Outdoor Center for seven seasons now. What began as a Guide School course with NOC has come full circle, you can now catch Nicole teaching Guide School every spring! Having studied Ecotourism and Adventure Travel in college, she was not surprised a bit that she ended up making a home in the outdoor industry.

When Nicole isn’t guide on the Pigeon, heading out on the Nolichucky or Cheoah, she spends her time training dogs (she is a certified dog trainer), gardening, painting, crafting, fishing, hunting – anything that gets her outside and in nature.
