Nicole joined Heart of Chelsea in 2006 having taken care of animals in a Brooklyn practice for 4 years prior. She has an uncanny ability to keep cats and dogs calm and comfortable while providing much needed care. Her certification in human cosmetology translates directly to her interest and ability in grooming even the most skeptical patient to perfection. Passion is the only way to describe her interest in helping your four-legged family members. She’ll always have your pet’s best interest in mind like it was her own cat Penny, or adopted and spoiled long-haired Chihuahua named Chi Chi. Nicole’s free time is spent baking, cooking, gardening and practicing advanced yoga techniques.
