Nichole is a native outdoor enthusiast with a passion for paddling, hiking and biking. She enjoys camping and getting lost in nature while exploring the great outdoors. Before receiving two degrees from Arkansas State University, she was a collegiate athlete playing soccer for the University of the Ozarks. As an animal lover at heart (she’d own her own zoo if she could) you can find her playing with Grizz and any other animal who wanders into the bike shop or at our other river locations. When she’s not at the bike shop or marina she’s likely tucked away in one of Little Rock’s local coffee shops fulfilling a dream as a freelance writer. She fell in love with RTRO on one of our first kayak tours in 2017 and is a vital part to our company, on the water, bike trail and social media.
