A native of Kingston, Jamaica, Nicola found the transition to sunny South Florida practically seamless. Though new to the University as an employee, she is actually a proud FIU panther returning home. She obtained her Bachelor’s from FIU in Hospitality Management, then went on to earn her MBA in Marketing from Barry University. After teaching in the Florida public school system for 11 years, working in college admissions for just over 2 years, the shift to academic advising was a natural one for Nicola. She continues to let her passion for teaching and guiding students, govern her in her new role as an academic advisor.
