Rockette Nicole On Being a Working Mom: ‘Be the Best Person You Can Be’

The Life of a Radio City Rockette

As a Rockette, mother of three (two boys and a little girl!) and wife, my days are definitely challenging. I strive to stay positive and always remind myself that I have done the best I can do—I strongly believe that “Everything happens for a reason.” For most, the holiday season means running around to see family and friends, but for me and my family, it is an extremely busy time.

Since my husband and I both work in New York City and live in New Jersey, it is really important for us to have a strong support system at home. It is comforting to know that while my husband and I are working, the kids are cared for at home. Having incredible support allows us to concentrate and focus all our energy on work.

Similarly, when I am home with my family, I give 100 percent of my attention to my kids and husband. I always say, “Live life like its your last day because you never know what tomorrow will bring.” It is a constant battle to be good at life, but remember we are human and make mistakes. Never regret and just try to be the best you can be!
