words from our clients AND PARTNERS

"Nicole's dedication to process and collaboration rings true in how she carries out every phase of a project. In our work to implement a component of the HealthADAPT project with the Central Coast, we faced several challenges such as the remoteness of communities, an acknowledgement that we needed to decolonize our engagement approach, and trying to carry out this work in the midst of the global pandemic. Nicole's flexibility and relationship building ensured that we worked directly with communities, while respecting safety protocols, resulting in an informed and useful piece of work that Vancouver Coastal Health could build on."

Craig Brown, PhD (he/him)
Senior Scientist, Climate Change and Health / Vancouver Coastal Health

"Nicole has a great ability to synthesize large amounts of complex information quickly.  She grasps what is important and understands the nuance of the subject material and language.  I found this particularly useful when dealing with sensitive matters like Indigenous self-determination. She is experienced, thoughtful, and works independently. These are the qualities I appreciate and why I will continue to collaborate with her on my projects in the future."

Nikki was responsive, thorough, thoughtful, and incredibly well-organized throughout the process. She carried the project forward with grace, adapting to the needs of the client and to our process, and she produced a fantastic product. We will be excited to work with her again!"
