About Nikole

Hi there

Hi, I'm Nikole!

When I started my business, I thought I would spend my days doing what I love--writing and editing technical documents. Instead, I spent my days chasing clients and trying to keep my head above water. Every day, I felt like I was drowning. I was frustrated, angry, and exhausted, and I kept dreaming about how great it was going to be "someday" when I finally built a stable, sustainable business.

But "someday" never came.

When I wasn't cold calling prospective clients (the equivalent of creating free content and lead magnets back then), I was attending networking events or going on coffee dates that turned into nothing.

Until one day, when a local engineering firm asked me to help them with their government proposals. I had never written a proposal for a government contract before. But, I was a writer...how hard could it be?

Right away, I saw why my client had been losing so many bids. And I knew how I could help them.

Over the next few months, I helped that client win six government contracts worth over $10 million. They loved my work so much, they referred me to their team partners. And before I knew it, I was developing proposals and government contracting sales strategies full time.

That's when I realized: if I could win government contracts for other people, why couldn't I win them for myself.

My first government contract was in 2009. I made $44,000 to do the work I loved--editing environmental documents. Since2009, I've grown my company, Peak Science Communications, from a single-person, technical editing company to a full-service environmental consulting firm with over $68 million in multi-year contracts. And I did it during the Great Recession.

And now, I'm helping other small businesses do the same.

We me Nikole when we were looking for someone to help us respond to an important RFP. She was knowledgeable about the process and sensitive to the needs of our small firm so we signed a contract with her and have been very happy with the result. Even before we knew we won the contract, we knew Nikole was the right choice for us."
