Before joining IEN, Nicole held notable positions in the Sustainability Office at Green Mountain College, where she implemented campus-wide strategic sustainability initiatives such as renewable energy procurement, waste diversion, student education, and sustainable investing through the endowment. Nicole's dedication and expertise in the field have been recognized by her peers, as she was honored with the SRI 30 Under 30 Award.

Georges Dyer, Co-Founder and Executive Director of IEN, said: “Nicole has been instrumental to IEN’s success over the past seven and a half years - developing new strategies and building key initiatives for the Network.  She has managed a wide range of operational responsibilities, and built a strong professional network. Nicole has developed deep expertise in mission-aligned, sustainable investing, particularly as it relates to endowment management.  We are thrilled to have her take this next step in her career to help lead the next chapter of IEN’s success.” 

Nicole shared, “It has been such a joy to spend my early career growing within and alongside IEN as an organization. In accepting this new role, I’m full of gratitude and enthusiasm to be able to continue to support higher education institutions in taking concrete steps to address social inequity and the interrelated climate crisis through their investment portfolios.”

As Managing Director, Nicole will continue to lead program and content development across all IEN Initiatives, with further focus on supporting and enhancing IEN’s strategic planning, operations, team management, development, and member engagement.
