Nicola was born at Waipiro Bay in Te Tairawhiti (the eastern-most projection of New Zealand's North Island). She lived in Ruatoria until the age of ten when her family joined the urban drift and moved to Auckland. Nicola graduated as a psychiatric nurse in 1976 and since then has worked in many different care settings in New Zealand and Australia. Due to her interest in Maori health, Nicola has been included in local and national health-policy working parties. As well as her nursing skills, Nicola has developed a profile in contemporary Maori art and has exhibited since 1990. She currently lives in a little township 40 km north of Auckland called Helensville, where she and her partner spend most weekends playing golf, walking their dogs and renovating their house.
