Residency: Family Medicine, UMass Fitchburg Family Medicine Program

Nicole grew up on Long Island and graduated from Villanova University with a BS in Comprehensive Science. She graduated from Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed residency at the UMass Fitchburg Family Medicine Program, where she first found her interest in Sports Medicine. Nicole is thrilled to be at BU where she looks to further her knowledge of sports ultrasound, outpatient procedures, and team coverage.

Nicole has always been dedicated to getting involved in her community. Throughout medical school, she mentored high school students and led an organization that was committed to tutoring inner-city children. Nicole also has a personal interest in Colon Cancer awareness. Over the past 9 years, she and her family have raised over $200,000 for the Colon Cancer Alliance through various events including the annual Ryan and Ken Kiess Memorial Golf Outing.

In her personal time she enjoys skiing and golfing, and prides herself on living an active lifestyle by running half marathons. Although raised as a Mets, Jets and Islanders fan, she is eager to embrace all of the Boston sports teams!
