Nicole Graham was a street cop for 13 years, working in both busy Sydney suburbs and isolated small country towns. She is a multi-award winning business woman and entrepreneur. She is on several boards and advisory groups with beyondblue, NSW Police Force, Heritage Highway Tourism and was the President of the Australian Companies Institute (AUSBUY).
Nicole moved with her family to Tasmania in late 2014 where they purchased a heritage sandstone Church, which is being renovated into a café, functions & wedding venue, due to open in October.
Nicole is a volunteer speaker for beyondblue, a national organisation that works to raise awareness about mental health, reduce the associated stigma and encourage people to get help.
Nicole became a beyondblue speaker to share her experience to make people aware that mental health conditions don’t discriminate and can be talked about, treated and managed. She wants to show that you can excel to even higher heights and fulfilment after having a mental illness.
Nicole is married with 3 children; a 23yr old professional skydiver, a 21yr old law student and a 7 year old who wants to be an “army man”, V8 driver, farmer, musician….and that was just this week.
Her interests include travelling, swimming, reading and taking on new challenges to live life to the fullest.
