Nickie studied Music at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, graduating in 2018 with a BMus (Hons) degree in violin performance. Having grown up playing in a variety of ensembles performing on tours throughout Europe, Nickie now enjoys regularly playing with a string quartet formed during her time at college. Whilst studying she was also given the opportunity to assist with the organisation of student led concerts, which helped to fuel her ambition to work in arts management.

As well as her love for music, Nickie is a keen traveller and recently returned from a three month long trip to Asia, Indonesia and Australia before she joined Hazard Chase as an Assistant Artist Manager in February 2019, working with instrumentalists and conductors.
