After studying Communications at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, Nicole began her career at Hanson & Ryan in 2002. Unsure of what she wanted to do, she started out as the Receptionist, and ultimately worked in every department in our office. She obtained her P&C license in 2005 and moved into the Commercial Lines Department where she started off as an assistant. She eventually worked her way into her current position as an Account Manager. In 2012, she received her ACSR designation. Nicole has always been interested in Technology, and is always willing to help her fellow co-workers when it comes to computer needs. A few years ago, she began to assist in integrating solutions and attends annual conferences to implement new ideas for Hanson & Ryan.

When Nicole isn’t at work, she is spending time with her husband and two children. She resides in Little Falls and is very active in her community. She is the head softball coach for her daughters Travel Softball team and assists in many other sports and activities in her town. Nicole also still enjoys playing recreational volleyball and softball. Nicole and her family enjoy travelling and have been to Disney almost annually.

Fun Fact: Nicole may have joined the Hanson & Ryan family in 2002, but she has known the Ryan family since she was 3 when she met the now CEO, Carrie Ryan, in pre-school.
