Nicole Smith 

Nicole is currently a student at Southern New Hampshire University where she studies graphic design. She lived in Chicago for a little over two years in which time she attended Columbia College Chicago. It is there in the Windy City that she discovered Fleet Feet Sports and became an employee in the spring of 2014 until she moved back home to New England in the fall. She had been running as a hobby for about 8 years, and just completed her first race in June 2015. Nicole played soccer in her younger years until she gave up the sport for cheerleading. This was her athletic focus during most of high school, but she consistently ran on her own to stay in shape and to relieve stress. She enjoys running with the Fleet Feet Training groups, as well as on her own, and is aiming to reach further distances each season. When she is not running or training, Nicole enjoys listening to Taylor Swift or can be found editing the Fleet Feet Nashua Website!
