NDSU Foundation Team Member since 2017
In her role as associate director of events and programs, Nicolette plans and executes events designed to cultivate, recognize, educate, and steward NDSU alumni, supporters, and friends. She is also the advisor for the Bison Ambassadors, the philanthropic student group who aim to cultivate a culture of philanthropy through educating and engaging students, alumni, and supporters.
Nicolette grew up in Valley City, North Dakota, and earned her business degree from the University of Mary. She enjoys black coffee, used books, gardening, and shopping small, local businesses. She and her husband, Patrick, have a daughter named Banks, and (although Nicolette likes dogs more) two cats named Helen and Arthur.
"To me, philanthropy is the act of people having a desire to better the human condition. This supports my personal values and who I aspire to be as an individual and pairs nicely with how I want to spend my time during the work week."
