Veterinary Assistant

Nicole grew up in the Berkshires in Massachusetts, where she spent a lot of time outdoors exploring the forest and riding horses. It wasn’t hard for her to develop a fondness for nature and the animal kingdom early on in life. When the time came to consider a career path, one choice simply seemed to make perfect sense: animal medicine. Nicole hasn’t looked back since!

Nicole enrolled in a work-study program during high school that allowed her to shadow at a local veterinary clinic. Later that summer, she was hired by the hospital until she headed off to college. Next, Nicole moved to Las Vegas and met her husband, then moved to Maryland for a time before relocating to Charlotte. She joined the Hambright Animal Hospital family in 2017, and couldn’t be happier to serve the area’s pets and animal parents as a Veterinary Assistant.

Away from work, Nicole likes taking day trips and spending quality time with her family. Along with her husband and daughter, she shares her life with a long-haired cat, a short-haired cat, and two Cattle Dog mixes. One of her dogs, Kobe, won a barking contest when the family lived in Las Vegas—thanks to his efforts, Nicole and her husband won a night at Mandalay Bay along with two tickets to a production of The Lion King!
