Nicola has performed on stage, television and film. She was born and raised in New York City in a theater family. Weekends were spent in the back of a dark theater watching the magic happen on stage....dreaming of being up there herself one day! She received her training at Carnegie-Mellon University earning a BFA in Drama. Nicola began her professional career performing on the New York stage. She also branched out to become a professional competitive dancer, traveling the world, winning championships and teaching master classes. She was able to combine her two passions, acting and dance, in the film Love 'n Dancing playing a competitive swing dancer, acting along side Billy Zane, Amy Smart and the legendary Betty White. She is currently represented by Talent Express Management and FFT Models.
