With over 25 years as a registered nurse and having 4 kids, Nicole shared her knowledge in a parenting book which saw Nicole provide the community with solutions to everyday problems as a parenting expert on local radio for 3 years.

Her passion for teaching continues when coaching college and club basketball where she empowers young athletes to have both personal and team growth, gaining valuable insight from both Nicole’s playing and referee experiences.

After moving out of the city, Nicole found herself living on acreage during drought times where water restrictions were in place and septic systems were the only method of watering the grass. Nicole was told by her husband to stop wasting water in the laundry sink and make it more user friendly for him to wash his hands while she was soaking clothes. In true entrepreneurial spirit, Nicole accepted the challenge setting up Brisbane based company Soka Australia and designed a water saving laundry soaking system.

Determined to design an innovative concept that allowed multiple items to be separately soaked in different solutions, Nicole also wanted to design a product that could be the solution to many other household problems, reducing the need for unnecessary purchases and excess household clutter.

Her concept was simple
– increase the usability and functionality of the laundry sink whilst saving water, detergent, space, time and money.
The Soka Tub is proudly made in Australia and Nicole actively supports local business through donations and mentoring.

Inundated with stain removal requests Nicole has now become the Laundry Queen providing daily laundry advice from stain removal, machine maintenance to DIY recipes. Since the average Australian throws 23kg of clothes away every year, predominately due to stains, it is Nicole's passion is to empower the nation to remove stains using simple everyday cost effective solutions that will save money, time and water, encouraging all those who do laundry to be more efficient, sustainable and successful.
