Nicky has a BA Honours degree in English Literature and has been a professionally qualified PR consultant for over twenty years. Nicky lived in London for ten years, working for leading PR agencies with clients ranging from Eurocamp to Walt Disney, gaining considerable experience in all areas of communication. At just 28, Nicky set up her own freelance PR and copywriting business and in 2002, moved back to Yorkshire to get married and completely renovate her house in Kettlewell.
In 2010, Nicky’s son was born who now attends Kettlewell school, where Nicky has an active role as the secretary of the Friends of Kettlewell School. Originally hailing from Lancashire, Nicky loves living the Dales and likes nothing more than a good hike with son, friends and the dog – maybe followed by a local pint in the pub! She is passionate about the need for thriving, sustainable communities in The Dales and sees preserving our small but excellent rural schools as the biggest factor in achieving this.
