Nicole grew up in a construction family, always hearing about the houses her dad was working on and sometimes even getting to tour them as they were being framed. She started designing houses in grade eight and would come up with the ‘dream home’ of her friends and family members. As the years went by, her passion for design only grew stronger.
After graduating high school, complete with two AutoCAD courses and a scholarship won by a house plan she designed, Nicole headed off to BCIT to study in the Architectural and Building Engineering Technology program. She completed her Diploma of Technology in 2014 and has been working in the industry since. Nicole’s passion for creating the perfect space for clients to live in has brought her to Sarah Gallop Design.
The creativity does not stop when the work day ends, which is evident in Nicole’s many woodworking projects that decorate her house. When she is not in front of the computer drafting, she can be found in the garage with the power tools.
