Nicole Wilson is the Development Coordinator at Friends of the Rouge. In this role she is focused on maintaining the donor database and data analysis, while also assisting with stewardship. Nicole comes to Friends of the Rouge with over 20 years of experience in nonprofit work.

After 11 years at the Henry Ford she moved to the DC area and worked as the Operations Manager of the Oceans Domestic Program at the Environmental Defense Fund.

Nicole’s love for museums eventually called her back to museum work.
