Nicole Deschner started with APPLE Schools in November 2016 as a Knowledge Exchange Assistant. She comes with solid organizational and planning skills from experience in administration and coordinating and executing various events. At a time when APPLE Schools was expanding, she came on board to help with the increasing administrative duties and event planning across Alberta to better serve APPLE School communities. Nicole graduated in 2017 from the University of Alberta with a bachelor of science in nutrition and food, and a minor in health education – she has always had a passion for healthy eating and exercise, and believes that being part of the APPLE Schools team allows her to use that passion to help kids have a healthier future. In her spare time, Nicole loves running, playing soccer, cooking, dabbling in new exercise classes, and spending time with friends and family.
