2013-nicole-200Hey Jazz Fans! My name is Nicole and this is my 8th season with the Utah Jazz. 8th season!!! I really can’t believe how fast time has flown by. I have been so fortunate and blessed to be part of such a great team and a great organization. Here is a little insight of who I’am and what I like to do in my free time. I grew up in Kaysville, Utah and I’m the oldest of 3 children. When I’m not dancing at the games or at practice I’m most likely working. I work for Hoopes Vision as a surgical counselor and I love my job. I’m a busy busy girl but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

With my busy schedule it’s hard to find free time but when I get some I take advantage. I love the summers in Utah and my favorite thing to do in the summer is go boating. Some other things I really enjoy doing are working out, and traveling. I have had some amazing opportunities to travel to different parts of the world including London, Greece, Spain, Taiwan, and China. Love trying new things and going on different adventures. Craziest adventure I have ever been on was the day I decided to go sky diving and I had blast. Another thing I absolutely love to do in my free time is being with my family and friends. My family is my everything and I would not be where I’am without their love and support. My favorite nights are girlfriend nights. I love getting together with my best friends, going to dinner and spending hours laughing, being silly, and playing games.

I love being part of the America First Jazz Dancers for so many reasons. I’am surrounded by such incredibly talented, smart, strong, beautiful women who I have made life long friends with. I get to do what I love and have a passion for which is dancing. Dancing at the games is pretty incredible, the energy, the atmosphere and the fans make it such a great experience. We are not only just dancing and practicing we spend a lot of time out in the community. I love doing appearances and having the opportunity to meet so many new people. Love my job and am thankful that I get to do what I love everyday and that is dance. Can’t wait for this season and to continue to cheer on my favorite team! GO JAZZ!!!
