Nicole Hamilton

Like lots of Cincinnati natives, I've tried from time to time to move to a new city, but I always come back to my hometown. I love finding the hidden places in Cincinnati that haven't made it on the radar just yet. If you look (and you don't have to look too hard) you can find unique places in Cincinnati that allow you to see the city through a different lens.

Nicole has a B.A. in poltical science and a master's degree in literature and writing. She's also a certified yoga instructor.
