She has also hosted 6 seasons of the classic academic gameshow "Reach For The Top", and interviewed A-list Hollywood talent for the Toronto International Film Festival. Nicole's screen acting credits include roles on "The Handmaid's Tale", "In Contempt", "The Expanse", "Odd Squad", "Remedy", and of course, playing badass archer Melanippe Callis in "Carmilla", Seasons Two, Zero, Three, The Podcast, and The Movie.

As a writer, Nicole has contributed to the new "Peanuts" series (a collaboration between DHX, Apple and NASA), written the educational kids' series "The Incredible Adventures of EnviroGirl" for TVOntario, and two plays. Onstage, Nicole improvised with the Second City's Canadian National Touring Company for 2 seasons, and received critical acclaim for her solo show, "Better Parts", a jazz-infused stand-up act, which toured to sold-out houses in three countries and which the Globe and Mail called "intoxicatingly written and joyously performed".
Nicole's essay, "What Decent Men Can Do After #MeToo" was shared over 70 thousand times on Facebook, then commissioned by CNN, where it ranked among CNN.com's top articles of the year. Nicole lives in Toronto and holds a Guinness World Record for playing dodgeball for 36 hours without sleeping- an accomplishment she does not recommend.
