Nicole joined Hand Surgery Associates in January of 2020. She received her master’s degree in physician assistant studies at the University of California, Davis and completed her undergraduate studies there as well. Prior to becoming a physician assistant, Nicole worked as a physical therapy aide in an outpatient practice. Before joining our practice, she worked as a physician assistant in the Napa Valley in orthopedic spine and general orthopedics including hand, sports, and trauma.
Nicole’s enthusiasm for hand surgery developed from her experiences in working with hand therapists, as well as working in the operating room and orthopedic rotations while in PA school. She finds it rewarding to be able to work with patients through the recovery process and help them regain function and mobility.
Outside of the office, Nicole enjoys spending time with her husband and two golden retrievers. Her hobbies include board games, camping/hiking, traveling, and coffee.
