In 2021, Nicole, her husband Keith, and their 9-year-old daughter Amelia joined the MVYC and immediately dove in headlong with Amelia joining the swim team in very short order. Nicole and Keith began volunteering for social committee events and - of course - the swim team, as well as partaking in the occasional poker night. 

Nicole is excited to support the MVYC as Chair of the Social Committee and appreciates every volunteer who helps keep the MVYC afloat.
