Nicole Pollack graduated from Baylor University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing and a minor in French. She joined Ker & Downey shortly thereafter and is part of the team that prepares clients’ custom itineraries, final documents, and country guides. She loves everything French-related, putting France at the top of her travel bucket list. In her spare time, she enjoys going to concerts, reading, watching movies, and spending time with friends and family.

Favorite quote: “Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu’avec le cœur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Le Petit Prince
(English translation: “Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”)
