Bright, driven, and fun, Nicolette is a recent graduate of Shenandoah Conservatory, with both a BFA in Musical Theatre ('20), and a MS in Performing Arts Leadership and Management ('21).


 She was born and raised on Long Island, the land of great pizza and bagels, with a big ol' Italian family and Broadway in her backyard. Nicolette has been singing since she could speak, and had her first choir solo by 2nd grade- You Raise Me Up...pretty heavy, right? By age 11, she traded her softball cleats for a pair of 1-inch baby Capezios, and fell in love with the stage. 


 Seven years and 30+ shows later, Nicolette headed to Winchester, Virginia to pursue her dreams. In her five years at Shenandoah, she also discovered a love for producing and arts management through her work with The Playwrights Performance Group and Alpha Psi Omega. 

Nicolette has repeatedly been noted as professional, prepared, humble, and fun to work with.  AND, she makes a mean guacamole.
