FIND SOMETHING THAT YOU FEEL PASSIONATE ABOUT AND CREATE A 'VOLUNTEER VACATION'.
Nicole is a sonographer in Seattle and was nominated by her long-time friend, Laila. Nicole spends her free time and uses her vacation days to go on mission trips to impoverished countries where she trains local medical providers about women’s health and prenatal care. She’s been to Uganda (twice), Zambia, Bangladesh, and Guatemala. Nicole’s generosity is incredible!
In addition to her mission trips, Nicole also volunteers with local animal shelters, like Seattle Humane. She walks the most challenged dogs, focusing her time and energy on getting them ready for adoption. Laila shares, “Nicole is a true humanitarian,” to babies and animals. In fact, Nicole considers herself a “professional cuddler”!
Nicole loves the idea of breaking down social barriers by getting involved. She suggests “finding something that you feel passionate about and creating a 'volunteer vacation'”.
All the kudos to Nicole!! She walks the talk with her giveback-getaways, vacationing where she makes a meaningful difference and sharing her knowledge and expertise along the way.
