Nichole started her career in healthcare over 20 years ago practicing neuromuscular massage and cranial sacral therapy, focusing on people who had chronic pain related to head and neck injuries. She began working with Dr. Lauson over 10 years ago at Aurora Orthodontics and TMJ with patients suffering from TMD. At that time, Nichole began continuing education in early orthodontic treatment and myofunctional therapy and a few years later assisted in the launching of NEO New Early Orthodontics.
Her mission is to create an exceptional patient experience and to support NEO?s powerhouse Dr.?s and team so they can continue to deliver exceptional care for our NEO family. Alongside Dr. Lauson and Dr. Holly, Nichole participates yearly in multiple continuing education classes and summits in airway and orthodontics with leading dentists and physicians in the field. She is also a member of Associated Massage and Bodywork Professionals, the AAPMD and the American Orthodontic Association. Nichole is married with two daughters and is the step-mama to two bonus kids. Three are in college and one heading into the military after graduation. Spending time with family and friends, finding fun little restaurants, working and Hot Yoga are her favorite things, not necessarily in that order. 🙂
