President & Executive Director
After meeting hundreds of patients across the state of Massachusetts while advocating for their right to safe access, Nichole was invited to take a leadership role in the alliance in 2014. Since becoming director of the fledgling organization, Nichole worked with all stakeholders involved in the implementation of Ch.369, ‘An Act for the Humanitarian Medical Use of Marijuana’ to craft and implement viable regulations, site over 100 safe access points across the Commonwealth, and grow the number certified patients from 153 in October of 2014 to a total of 41,822 as of May 31, 2017.
Beginning her communications career in telecommunications, she now champions for patients rights to safe access to medical marijuana as the president & executive director of the Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance. Nichole has cultivated relationships with well known mainstream media outlets and holds a strong tie to the community through local and social media. After suffering two major car accidents and enduring debilitating muscle spasms resulting from them, she retired from her telecommunications career to follow through with her dream in safe access for all.
