Born in Swanage, Nico later moved to London and then on to America whilst working for the Gallup Organization, before returning in 2000. She originally trained and worked in the market research industry, programming market-specific data collection files and reports for clients such as Merryll Lynch, DHL, BT and the Daily & Sunday Telegraph, providing the only correct exit poll data for 1997 General Election (client Daily & Sunday Telegraph).
After retraining as an English teacher, she rediscovered her love of words and found herself giving up teaching to work at The Gazette as sales manager and sub-editor in 2001. Over the past twelve years she has continued to teach, offering up to 12 work experience placements a year for students aged 14 - 25.
Now Editor, Nico is taking the Gazette forward into its next phase of growth, with the addition of the newly-published Purbeck Guidette 2011 (available from our online shop)
