Founder and Publisher at Camping for Women

Nicole grew up in the rural town of Bendigo, surrounded by nature in country Victoria, Australia.

She first got her taste of international exploring when she accepted a senior school exchange program in Japan where she immersed herself in the local culture and learned to speak, read and write fluent Japanese.

Since graduating, Nicole spent time living abroad in Cambodia as well as travelling extensively to Canada, USA, Europe and within Asia and Africa, always being drawn by the changing natural beauty that exists across the world.

Early in 2000’s Nicole contracted breast cancer and had to undergo significant medication including chemotherapy.  Since the successful course of treatment, she became a member of Dragons Abreast, a worldwide sisterhood of breast cancer survivors that compete internationally in Dragon Boat Races held in different parts of the globe.  Nicole has competed nationally and internationally in this sport that also raises awareness of breast cancer.

After founding Camping for Women in May 2015, Nicole has worked hard to build an ever-growing resource for women around the world who wish to enjoy the great outdoors as much as their male counterparts.  The website continues to grow each month in its readership, subscribers, advertisers and supporters.

Nicole loves talking with other women who are similar minded and enjoy time in the outdoors.  She loves communicating and working with contributors to the website as well as writing and sharing her experiences herself whenever she can.

Aside from writing all of the background copy for Camping for Women Admin-related pages, Nicole also shares her love of the outdoors through her ‘Natural Beauty’ travel series.
