What makes Nick different

Nick and his wife, Sarah, live in a northwest neighborhood of Chicago with their Corgi. Nick claims that he is a human lucky penny, as he has witnessed the same friend get two holes-in-one when they were golfing together.

Where Nick makes an impact

Nick is a member of the Association for Change Management Professionals and is a Fischer Fellow Alumni. He and Sarah became the first married couple to participate in the Fischer Fellowship. The pair spent six months in Temuco, Chile, working with the Chol Chol Foundation, a group whose motto is “Promote culture, respect, and dignity for all men and women, recognition of their skills, and ongoing support of human development in the Mapuche tribes.” They raised more than $27,000, improved the foundation’s efficiency in a number of areas, and made a lasting impact on the tribe. They also documented their journey each step (and day!) of the way.

Nick is also on the Posse Foundation Leadership Council and a Career Champion for the Women’s Leadership Network.
