Nicholson Capital Management, Inc. 


I am very proud to be the first woman to graduate from Northwest Missouri State University with a degree in Finance. I started an investment company 30 years ago and have felt that my years at Northwest prepared me to move forward with my career. Through Greek life, as member of Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority, I made lifelong friends.

In my spare time I like to travel, hike, read and spend time with my family. My parents still live in Grant City, Missouri.

Why are you "forever green"?

"Being a member of the Northwest Foundation Board has been one of the best experiences of my life. It has given me the opportunity to work with a wonderful staff and talented board members, on the most beautiful campus in the country. We all share the same goal, to help other students as we were once helped ourselves."
