Nicole was born and raised in Northeast Florida and, after graduating from college, decided she wanted to see more of the world and, on a bit of a whim, took off on a year-long adventure around the world, stopping in 15 countries on 3 continents. After a few longer stints back to Africa over the course of 3 years, she wound up back in Florida right before COVID-19 shut the world down.

Emerging from the pandemic-induced hiatus, Nicole wanted a change of scenery and made the move up to Nashville, TN, where she gets to enjoy having true fall and winter seasons for the first time in her life!

She has a rich professional history in non-profits, marketing, and sales and is excited to combine her love for helping people and adventuring around the world as a Membership Manager here at THIRDHOME.

Nicole’s wanderlust took root at the age of 10 years old with a trip down to Mexico, sparking a lifelong love for travel. She has since visited over 30 countries—some of her most notable are Thailand, Israel, Zimbabwe, Peru & Egypt, and counting!

When she’s not traveling or working, she is volunteering with various non-profits in the Middle Tennessee area, reading, experimenting in the kitchen, or hiking and taking camping trips with her 3 dogs (Bandit, Daisy, and Samson) and Partner.

Growing up in rural Ohio, Jen was drawn to adventure at a young age and couldn’t wait to experience life beyond the cornfields. She moved to Nashville to attend Belmont University and, during college, she traveled abroad for the first time to England, Ireland and Scotland. That trip had a profound effect on her and sparked her passion for travel and experiencing the world.

Blessed with Asian roots, a Spanish name, and Dutch roots and work ethics, Charo feels that she’s a true Citizen of the World. Her parents were both born in Indonesia (her mother in Java and her father in Borneo) and immigrated to the Netherlands during wartime.

Charo has mainly worked in hospitality, tourism, real estate, and property management.
