For Norfolk School Board, Ward 1


Nicole Carry is an inspiring leader whose passion for serving her community is already changing Norfolk. Nicole spent the first part of her career in the Navy, supporting a number of NATO operations and later being stationed in Norfolk, on one of the first series of combatant ships that deployed women. After her time in the Navy, Nicole made Norfolk her home and has built a career there, working with school districts, government agencies and companies to enhance how they use technology.

She has become a leader in her community, founding Norfolk Forward, an organization that promotes smart use of technology in enhancing city life; serving on the LGBT chamber of commerce; and being appointed on an interim basis to the Norfolk City Council. Her work has prepared her to tackle the challenges and opportunities in Norfolk's Public Schools, and we are confident she will be a leading voice on the School Board.
