Nicole Nathan studied English Literature at the University of Western Ontario. After graduating, she worked as an editor and then moved to advertising where she was a copywriter specializing in travel.
Always searching for higher mountains to ascend, steeper trails to climb and increasing depths of meaning, Nicole became a trekker, mountain biker and ba'alat teshuvah. She happily embraced her spiritual renewal with Judaism and continues to learn, taking classes in Tanach and Jewish philosophy.
Looking for another challenge, she brought her family on aliyah in 2005. She works with her husband in new media.
She now lives with her husband and children in Ra'anana and spends much time in spiritual Tsfat where she is infused with Chasidut, a touch of Carlebach, plus glorious hiking and biking in the surrounding mountains.
