Nicola’s career began in 1992 in Scotland within the academic field at the primary level, where she was promoted to senior leader, a position she held for 15 years. She then moved to Abu Dhabi in 2015 and worked as an executive coach and management trainer in the corporate world throughout the MENA region. During this time, she has coached and trained leaders across UAE and beyond in many areas including coaching skills, emotional intelligence, problem-solving, decision-making, adaptive leadership, and mental toughness.

Academically, Nicola holds an MSc (Dist) in Applied Coaching Psychology and Positive Psychology from the University of East London and her dissertation was published in the Middle East Journal of Positive Psychology.
