About Me


WELCOME TO 3 UNDER THREE!

I'm Nicole and I'm quickly gaining experience on how to manage (or barely manage) a full household, include a toddler, new twins, a husband, a live-in nanny, and both a dog and cat.

You'll come to meet Anais (born July '17) and Gisele and Vivienne (born April '20). Buska our Icelandic Sheepdog, and Franklin, our 20 year old cat, may also make cameos.

A little about me:
  • I'm from the small town of Wahoo, Nebraska, but now live in a DC suburb in Falls Church, Virginia
  • I have a PhD in Industrial Organizational Psychology from Penn State - if you've seen office space, I joke that I'm a Bob!
  • I work in Human Resources and I love it! I've worked in Financial Services, Defense, Education, and now I'm in Health Care
About Me

“ It's double the giggles, and double the grins, and double the trouble if you're blessed with twins.”
