We had the good fortune of connecting with Nicole DeGeorge and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nicole, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I truly believe taking risks is so important. I have a motto: “I’d rather try and know, than ask myself ‘what if?’ “. In July 2020 I took a huge risk to move from New Jersey to Colorado to create a better life for myself, and it’s been the best thing I’ve ever done! If I never took the jump, I’d still be wondering about it.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am not currently doing this full time, but I would love to collaborate with some outdoor brands. I spend a huge majority of my time outside, and it would be a blessing to be able to represent a brand that encompasses outdoor recreation, to help encourage people to spend more time outside.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
When visiting Colorado Springs for the first time, obviously Garden of The Gods is a MUST. There’s just something about those rocks with Pike’s Peak towering over them that is a real treasure and sight to see!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
To my Mom. Although gone from this world, she instilled in me valuable morals and encouraged my free spirit. I would not be the woman I am today without her guidance and love.
