NicoLee spent several years in kinship and foster care, including group homes until she aged out. She remembers having several case workers, child advocates and CASA volunteers during her foster care experience. NicoLee was impacted by the lack of control she was allowed to have over her life, but remembers her independent living classes, and feels her experience in care assisted her to grow up to be an assertive advocate and shape her career path.
NicoLee has earned her BA degree in Psychology at Washington and Jefferson college. She also earned a Masters of Social work from the University of Pittsburgh and is a licensed clinician working with adopted children and children in foster care.
