Meet Nicole Felton, our second unsung hero of the month! Nicole has been an ardent participant in Juicy Wise Women gatherings from the beginning. We have come to know and love Nicole for her compassion and authenticity. “She is thoughtful and supportive and a fantastic listener.” And, when Nicole shares her wisdom, we listen. Her spirit shines when she shares ... helping to light the path for all.
Nicole volunteers for Germantown Help, a local non-profit organization whose mission is to help neighbors in need, which might mean delivering groceries or medications, or transporting folks to appointments. Whatever her task, Nicole takes it on with a smile and inspires others to do the same. Nicole is an exceptional wife, mom and grandma …” kind and generous and loving.” As a reading enthusiast, Nicole passes along the joy and wonder of books and stories to her beloved family. She has also demonstrated in our gatherings that she is a wonderful writer!
One of Nicole’s passions is organic gardening … and not just tomatoes and cucumbers! We recently learned that she is planting a unique vegetable in her garden this year. Nicole informed us that hopniss (a.k.a. apios americana and American groundnut) has a long history of use among Native American tribes.
As a woman who is “always looking for things to do to improve our world,” Nicole keeps herself politically informed. She has been seen at a demonstration or two, taking a stand for issues that align with her belief and conviction that all people are one people. We can all take inspiration from Nicole and work to be great role models who stand up for what we believe in.
Congratulations, Nicole, on being one of our unsung heroes!
