Nicole began work at LSA Associates, Inc., in 2002, and was ultimately promoted to Principal and Managing Principal. It was at LSA that she met the love of her life, Arthur Black. Arthur and Nicole married on July 9, 2010. They welcomed Clifton in 2012, Andrew in 2014, and Marcus in 2018. Despite her illustrious career, Nicole’s greatest pride and joy was her family.
