Nicole TaylorDeputy Director

Nicole wants to live in a world made of books where her horse riding, squirrel patronus can roam free.

She received her degree in Communication from the University of Arizona and uses it every day to probe her cat’s mind for the answers to ultimate questions of the universe.


Nicole arrived in Tucson after spending her early childhood on the Navajo Reservation before graduating from Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire. This diverse educational background inspired her to try to understand how culture can shape a person’s perspective. This led to her desire to work helping to remove the barriers that prevent social equality. She joined the Earn to Learn team in 2013 and has been helping the program and its students reach new heights.

When she is not working she can most likely be found playing in her garden or watching Netflix with her family.If you would like to talk about travel, food, the amazing programs that Earn to Learn has to offer, or the general state of life, she would love to hear from you.
