Nicole’s goal is to pinpoint the perfect home for each Candidate while finding her Clients the talent they need to drive success.

Nicole came to Lucas Group in 2016 as a Senior Executive Search Consultant in the Accounting & Finance practice, specializing in placing professionals in contract positions throughout Georgia and the Southeast.
