Nicole has a strong passion for environmental protection and technical problem-solving. As a Senior Project Manager in Nitsch Engineering’s Planning department, she combines these passions on stormwater planning, green infrastructure, sustainable site design, and rainwater harvesting projects dedicated to preserving our communities and the environment for years to come. Nicole specializes in working collaboratively with multi-disciplinary design teams to integrate stormwater design solutions into the landscape.

Nicole’s key projects have included innovative stormwater master planning services at the University of Virginia, the Harvard Business School, and most recently the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She has been working as a stormwater planning consultant for Princeton University for over a decade, contributing to two significant campus planning efforts and several major implementation projects. Her experience also includes urban green infrastructure design and planning projects such as the Kennedy Street Green Infrastructure project in Washington DC, and a variety of green infrastructure streetscape projects in Boston through an on-call contract with Boston Water and Sewer Commission.

Outside of Nitsch

Nicole spends as much time as she can outdoors. From lounging at the beach during the summer, to hiking during the fall and spring, to skiing or snowshoeing during the winter, she loves to stay active and take advantage of the New England weather all year round. Nicole can also usually be found cheering for her sons on the football and lacrosse fields and basketball courts!
