Nicole Spindler is a recently published author of "Beyond Life's Moments: An Empowering Outlook on Transcending Unexpected Setbacks" that invites readers to discover eight building blocks to forge a continuous growth mindset for enduring life’s challenges. Nicole is a human resources professional and graduate of John Carroll University. She has always had a burning passion for writing and, learning from past hurdles, to bring a message of vulnerability, self-acceptance, and perseverance. It is her aspiration to inspire others to embrace their often life-derailing situations so that they may emerge not only victorious, but empowered to face whatever may come next. . When Nicole isn’t writing or working to better her community, she can be found chasing sunsets with her Maltese dog, Magellan, exploring her hometown of Pittsburgh, or scouring the local library for a first edition copy of "The Harry Potter Series."
