Meet Nicole


Born in Orange County, CA, Nicole was raised in Reno, NV, the youngest of three sisters.

With a life-long passion for physical fitness, she grew up dancing and practicing martial arts (she has a second degree black belt in Taekwondo). She continued both through college, where she also picked up triathlon and completed a half Ironman. She continues to box, while also enjoying skiing, hiking, scuba diving, and cooking. She currently lives in New Hampshire with her husband, Bill, and their Bernese Mountain Dogs, Buck and Walter.

Nicole received her bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. She went on to earn two Master's Degrees and a Doctorate Degree from Tufts University in Boston, MA. She has been published numerous times in academia and has contributed to many articles in the health and wellness space. In 2015, she began teaching boxing for EverybodyFights, a boxing fitness brand founded by George Foreman III, and later worked as the VP of Training, overseeing their in-gym and digital experiences. She currently works as an Adjunct Professor at both Tufts University and The George Washington University, teaching nutrition courses to students worldwide.

"The most important part of my Physical Capital approach is finding joy in doing what we all know we should do - eat a well-balanced diet, engage in exercise, and get 7-8 hours of sleep."

How I live the Four Capitals

I make an effort to spend my money strategically and efficiently, while saving appropriately to accomplish my future goals.

The most important part of my Physical Capital approach is finding joy in doing what we all know we should do – eat a well-balanced diet, engage in exercise, get 7-8 hours of sleep, and so on. In doing so, I strive to find fun recipes that I can cook with my family and activities that I look forward to doing, such as boxing or running. This helps me stay active and healthy, both physically and mentally.

The health sciences field is constantly evolving. Advancements in medicine and science allow us to continuously discover new approaches to staying healthy and enhancing our quality of life. Strengthening my Intellectual Capital involves reading books, articles, and research, and listening to podcasts and lectures.

Remaining mindful and calm in a world of hustle and growing expectations requires practice. I strengthen my Psychological Capital by going on walks without a phone, meditating, setting goals and creating opportunities to achieve them, and most importantly, taking time weekly to practice gratitude and remember what is truly important in life.

Why I enjoy working at SFG

I’d be remiss if I didn’t say working with my parents is what I like most. However, aside from working with family, I enjoy the client-centered and Four Capitals approach. I am not a financial advisor, yet I get to bring my area of expertise to the table and support clients in a unique way for this type of firm.
