Freelance writer and consultant: sexual health, kink, pleasure products, & more

I'm a freelance writer living in the Chicagoland area, and I've been published by Rolling StoneGlamour, Allure, The Establishment, and more. Much of my writing and research focuses on sexual health and sexuality from a pelvic pain perspective. I have also written many sex toy reviews for Chicago-based feminist magazine Rebellious

My consulting and research skills may be used for either personal or professional inquiries. I'm a graduate of Columbia College Chicago's nonfiction MFA program and spent several years working sex toy retail.

Others have noticed my work, too!

Nicole has the ability to demystify sensitive topics with an authoritative voice that's as inviting and informative as it is sympathetic. Her writing carefully explains the questions that we're afraid to ask, or even questions we never thought to ask in the first place. It was an honor when Nicole covered my story, as she did so with the kind of care and enthusiasm that sparked genuine conversation by countless readers.
