About Nicole & GenThirty

Hi there! I’m Nicole, the creator and founder behind GenThirty. GenThirty is the big sister to my other website, GenTwenty. Where GenTwenty is the twenty-something’s guide to life, GenThirty is the thirty-something’s guide to life. Hence the names πŸ˜‰

Here at GenThirty, you’ll mostly be hearing from me as I navigate motherhood and my thirties. GenTwenty, this blog’s virtual baby sis, is a multi-contributor platform which means we have a lot of wonderful and talented women sharing their experiences through their twenties. You can read all of my work there here.

As someone turning 30 in 2020, I am solidly in the millennial generation. I’m also a work-at-home mom, a wife, and a published author and writer who runs two websites, a podcast, and two YouTube channels. I love to create joy and find the simplicity in everyday life.

My biggest passion is connecting with others through our stories and experiences.

My son, Benjamin, was born in January 2019. He is my bright light and my greatest joy. I’ve been married to my husband for 8 years, though we are high school sweethearts and have been dating since 2006. He says it was love at first sight, I say maybe second sight.

We currently live in Seattle, WA, where we spend our time visiting our local coffee shops, spending time in our beautiful parks, and taking in all the city has to offer. If you need me, I’m probably either pouring myself a second cup of coffee, reading a book, laughing with my family, or planning my next great adventure.

Let’s connect on Instagram, I’d love to be friends!
