Favorite Part Of Her Job
Nicole's favorite part about her job is letting her creativity flow. She enjoys making social media posts and advertisements because she gets to have freedom with her designs and her ideas. She does not get a lot of outlets for her creativity, so having a job that allows her to do so makes work fun.
Why She Does This Work
Nicole's mother lost both her parents at the young age of 19. They both passed away only 3 weeks apart and her mother was an only child. Since they were immigrants from Portugal, they weren't educated about estate planning and the importance of it so they passed without having any plan in place. Because of that, Nicole's mom had to go through the probate process, twice, spending thousands of dollars and countless hours on paperwork and dealing with the court. Probate is a difficult process for anyone to deal with, let alone a 19-year-old who was grieving the loss of both parents. When a job opened up in the field of estate planning that allowed Nicole to pursue her passion in marketing she knew it was the best job for her! She found a career that let her showcase her creativity but also allowed her to work with people just like her mom, and hopefully prevent them from dealing with similar fates. Nicole enjoys educating people on the importance of estate planning and why everyone should have a plan in place.

Even though she has her hands full, she still makes the time to travel and she has been to over ten countries! If you were to ask Nicole where her favorite place she traveled to was, she would say Ireland. She loved the scenery, the green mountains, old castles, and even had the chance to kiss the Blarney Stone. Although Nicole's favorite country is Ireland, she is 100% Portuguese. Her mother is from São Miguel, and her father is from Santa Maria. Since all of Nicole's family is from the Azores, she has traveled there many times.
