Nichole Vesely

We have grown to expect a visionary and a details-oriented thinker who helps us see and plan in both ways

As a 2022 leading force in SIFN’s Joy Space: A Wellness Community in partnership with Huddle: Yoga and Energy Coaching and key supporter of our Nourish the Plains program—especially when we feature food justice projects—Nichole brings momentum. The resolve she demonstrates through undaunted energy and commitment to realizing a more humane world is admirable.

Nichole is a natural leader—brings so much intellectual and heart-generating value to building our grassroots organization at macro and micro levels. During team meetings, we have grown to expect a visionary and a details-oriented thinker who helps us see and plan in both ways.

While Nichole is a detailed systems thinker, she equally trusts the ambiguous process—that the universe is conspiring for and with high vibration energies personally and collectively brought to our lives and projects. In other words, we love how she plans and executes, and we love how she freefalls and trusts. These qualities alchemize in expressed badass female power, her capacity to be a woman empowering other women, and a trusted force for good. Authenticity is one of Nichole’s many resulting super powers.

If you have had the pleasure of holding space with Nichole during her SIFN-sponsored HerStory event during International Women’s Month, on a yoga mat, or through an intersecting JuJu’s Vegan event,
you likely left feeling lifted and empowered; lighter and more held and respected. Nourished.

This is why it makes perfect sense Nichole was promoted to a leadership position in Girl Scouts of Nebraska, where more women have the ability to grow from realize greater community impacts for women and girls from her influences.
