Nicole practiced law at the boutique intellectual property firm, Fitzpatrick Cella Harper and Scinto. At Fitzpatrick, she did both patent litigation and prosecution work, as well as IP due diligence. Because of her comprehensive law firm experience, Nicole is comfortable working with candidates with a variety of backgrounds, skill sets, and goals. In addition to practicing law, Nicole taught as an adjunct professor in the field of intellectual property law.
Prior to attending law school, Nicole earned a Ph.D. in Neuroscience. Her thesis research, which she performed in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, focused on the roles of stress-induced neurotransmitters in the immune response to herpes simplex virus infection. Her multidisciplinary background has provided her with extensive research and interpersonal skills, which benefit her candidates as she helps them with their employment search.
Nicole chose to leave the practice of law and become a recruiter because she truly enjoys helping other attorneys achieve their career goals. She carefully listens to her candidates wants and needs and purposefully seeks to find the best position for them.
Nicole received her J.D. cum laude from Pace University School of Law, her Ph.D. from Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, and her B.A. cum laude from Lehigh University.
