Nicole Gawronski, B.A.
Advisor (Fort Collins)
I was raised by a low-income, single mother and am a proud first-generation college graduate. I have experienced first-hand the power of education to completely transform possibility!
As a student, I worked in crisis centers, homeless shelters and residential treatment programs and witnessed thousands of small miracles in human resiliency and courage that I carry with me. I graduated from Colorado State University in 1990 with my BSW, resolve to remember where I came from & battle poverty, one person at a time. I began my career at The Women’s Center of Larimer County. At Alternatives To Violence, I provided emergency assistance/advocacy for victims, and created a sexual assault awareness program serving adolescents. I landed my dream job in 1992 when I joined Project Self-Sufficiency.
