Group Leader Echo Co (San Diego)
Marine Parent and Volunteer
Recruit Parents Facebook Groups Volunteer,
Total Volunteer Hours 1st & 2nd Quarter of 2018: 352.82! Nicole started volunteering with MarineParents in April 2017. She started as a Platoon Parent (now Volunteer in Training) with Echo Co San Diego. After a short while, she was promoted to Group Guide for 6 months and then took on the role of Group Leader with Echo. In addition to volunteering on the Echo Co page, Nicole can be found volunteering on the Wisconsin & Iowa state pages and on the Quantico Fleet page.
Nicole has 1 child, her Marine. He is currently stationed at Quantico, the Crossroads of the Marine Corps and works as an MP. Her other 'child' is her fat and lazy dog Charlie. Nicole is a lifelong resident of Wisconsin. She loves all things cheese, brats and green & gold! She enjoys camping, fishing, reading and trap shooting. Recently she shot against her Marine who kicked her butt. Now she is going to take lessons from him :) Nicole is the Administrative Services Director for a local non-profit, which is a fancy term for the finance person. She enjoys giving back to her community which includes being active in her Church and a local fraternal organization.
Nicole joined Marine Parents because she wanted to make a difference in the lives of those families whose children are just beginning their Marine journey. She looks forward to riding the roller coaster with our recruit families and cheering them on as they take their first steps into our family! She continues volunteering because of the relationships that she is building. A whole new family has been opened to her. Semper Fi!
