Until Grade 11, Jennifer Nicol was convinced she wanted to be a pediatrician. However, music was her passion and she couldn’t see herself giving it up. So she decided on a career that would eventually lead her to become a music teacher at Ubly Community Schools.
Nicol graduated from Laker High School in 1997 and Central Michigan University in 2001. From there, she worked as a student teacher in the sixth-grade classroom in the Unionville-Sebewaing School District.
