Nicole was born and raised in the Bay Area and recently graduated from the University of California, Riverside with a B.S. in Business Administration, concentrating in Information Systems. During her time there, she was active in the Chinese Student Association at UCR and the UCR Asian and Pacific Islander Student Advisory Council. She loved the sense of community that those organizations offered her and hoped to find a similar work environment. She first joined StreetCode Academy’s Operations team through the Americorps VISTA program to help further the mission of making technology and finding success in the tech industry accessible to everyone. Nicole quickly displayed a vast array of skill sets and a strong dedication to StreetCode’s community, which made her a perfect fit for our Development team. She now works to boost StreetCode’s available resources so that we can continue supporting the community for years to come.
Nicole loves trying all of the new, best food and boba spots around the Bay Area. Her other favorite things to do are cooking, golf, and spending time with her friends and family.
