With a drive for excellence and a passion for fostering a positive employee experience, Nicole Haddenham leads award-winning digital workplace initiatives and teams that focus on empowering employees through collaboration, communication and connection. Nicole is a life-long learner who is intellectually curious and unsatisfied with the status quo. You'll often hear her asking, "what if?" as she approaches challenges through the lens of a no-constraints philosophy.
Throughout her career, she has been successful in developing and leading multi-discipline company-wide functions, including intranet/digital workplace, internal communications and HR service delivery. As such, Nicole has had the pleasure of sharing with others through speaking and serving on panels at a variety of conferences for digital workspace, internal communications and project management.
A graduate from the University of Wyoming with a B.A. in Journalism, Nicole also holds an M.S. in Administrative Studies from the University of South Dakota and has a Master Certificate of Advanced Study in Information and Communication Technology with specialization in Project Management from the University of Denver. She also holds certifications as a Certified Cooperative Communicator and Master Cooperative Communicator and is an active member of the Project Management Institute, International Association of Business Communicators and Cooperative Communicators Association.
Nicole is also an active volunteer who gives her time to a variety of causes. She spent a year as an AmeriCorps Vista volunteer in Delaware and has served on numerous nonprofit boards, including as the 69th President of the Denver Jaycees and the President of The Denver Voice, a nonprofit street paper that serves as an agent of social change by empowering homeless, impoverished and transient individuals. Nicole also served as a business mentor for recent college graduates and new employees in the HR field.
In her free time, Nicole enjoys traveling, reading, fostering dogs, taking a class, riding her Peloton and spending time outdoors. She also regularly contributes to her blog, Trajectory of Life, which she began in 2007. The blog features stories of giving back, travel, life experiences and lessons, weekly reflections and more. While living in Denver, Nicole led a monthly writing circle, Denver Creates, a community of writers who met monthly for three years from 2016 to 2019.
Originally from a small town in South Dakota, Nicole has also called home the states of Wyoming, Delaware, Colorado and now, California, where she currently lives in San Francisco with her husband, Dustin, and fur baby, Ellie.
