After growing up on the Gold Coast, Nicole attended QUT in the same student intake as Andrew. Following graduation in 1995, Nicole moved back to the coast with her husband and worked for various local optometrists.
For the last 10 years, in between raising her four children and helping her husband run their successful surveying and town planning business, Nicole has worked part-time in practices owned by Andrew Bowden. She enjoys general optometry practice and looks forward to her weekly sessions at Tweed Heads.
Away from work, she keeps very busy spending time with her husband Michael and their four children, and enjoys travel and reading good books.
