For the past five years prior to joining the Alliance, Nicolle worked for ADG, Inc. as the Program Administrator for the City of Oklahoma City's MAPS 3 capital improvement program. In that role, she was responsible for the ongoing administration of the program implementation plan, program scheduling, community outreach and project programming for the $777 million construction program. She has previous experience consulting with local agencies and non-profit organizations in the areas of project management, grant writing, public involvement and human resource management.

She is a graduate of Leadership Oklahoma City and served on the Leadership OKC Alumni Board.

Nicolle grew up in Joplin, Missouri and has previously lived in Tulsa, Dallas and St. Louis. She has lived in Oklahoma City since 2004. "I moved here at the beginning of the incredible transformation of this city over the past decade. I feel so fortunate to have been so closely involved with the very impactful MAPS 3 program, and I'm thrilled to be able to continue working on transformative projects at the Alliance." 

Nicolle is married to Todd Goodman, and they have two children: Hannah (19) is a sophomore at University of Central Oklahoma and Lucas (12) attends Oklahoma City Public Schools. They live in historic Denniston Park in Oklahoma City. The family enjoys traveling together, and Nicolle especially loves exploring cities with her family. "I love to learn about the people, the architecture, the neighborhoods and the culture of cities. Cities are like living beings. They change and grow and suffer and thrive. They impact people and they are impacted by people. Cities fascinate me."

Flatiron Renovations Complete

Another Urban Renewal redevelopment project comes to an end as renovations to a 91-year-old flatiron building located at NW 5th Street and Harrison Avenue are complete. With Urban Renewal's support, developer Charles Ainsworth and architect Rand Elliott have preserved the previously vacant two-story building and incorporated a sleek third level that includes a glass curtain wall and rooftop deck. The building is serving as the new headquarters for PLICO, a healthcare liability insurance company.

The building's elegant mix of historic and modern architecture now serves as a gateway into the east side of downtown. At night,
PLICO's headquarters radiates with a golden glow illuminating the surrounding Deep Deuce District.

Plans for Phase II are already underway directly to the east of the PLICO building. Upon Urban Renewal's design review, commencement of construction of Phase II should begin on or before April 2017.
