Before getting her MFA, she taught at Galena High School in Reno and Centennial High School in Boise. She currently is an art instructor at Truckee Meadows Community College and has been on the TMCC gallery committee and a board member since 2005. Nicol has given classes at St. Mary’s Art Center in Virginia City. She also is a co-founder of Northern Nevada Printmakers’ Conspiracy.

Her work frequently is exhibited nationally and internationally, and is part of many permanent collections, including: Boise Art Museum; Corcoran College of Art and Design; Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Paper at Rutgers University; Southern Graphics Council Archives; The Kinsey Institute; University of Sharjah in Dubai, United Arab Emirates; and the Painting and Sculpture Museum Association in Istanbul, Turkey.
