You know her, you love her. She's "the funny one you spoke to at the bridal show" or "the little one that made you laugh so hard". Her name is Nicole and she's our most valuable Pin Up assistant but if you ask her she'll say she just carries stuff. During the week you can find her on the labor and delivery floor of the hospital holding down the desk and the fort. She's also a nursing school student for the next couple of years. She'll set up, clean up, keep us on schedule and give you a great iron set for your hair and a joke to make you smile.
