Nicole hails from gorgeous Venice, Italy and moved to New York City ten years ago. Growing up in Italy, she was always a member of swim teams, in addition to forever being a beach-goer and a lover of all things connected with the water. She has lived in many countries around the world but she has always chosen to live either on the beach or on an island. For her, knowing how to enjoy the water, and how to swim in it safely is the most important skill there is. Nicole has been attending college at the BMCC for her Associate's degree in Social Work and will be attending Hunter College to continue her education. She was a member of the BMCC Panthers swim team and is thrilled to see so many of her old teammates at Imagine.
