Born in Sacramento and raised primarily in Rocklin, Nichol’s life-long residency in Northern California has allowed her to build a strong and effective network of businesses and sponsors that can be helpful to anyone planning a fundraising auction. She began her professional career as a teenager, working together with her family in their automotive dealership. She did everything from washing cars, to answering phones, eventually working in the business office all through the age of 35. It was there she learned how to manage a team and run a successful business. After graduating from Sacramento State University with a degree in Psychology in 2002, Nichol returned full-time to the dealership where she began acquiring vehicles for the pre-owned sales department and managing the sales team. She credits this work for giving her the expertise required to be successful in the auction industry.
