Nicole Davies

Hello! My name is Nicole and I am a Marine spouse and mother of three daughters, ages 16, 10, and 7. I have been a stay-at-home mom most of their lives while also pursuing my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. In the past I have worked as a social worker for child welfare in the state of Pennsylvania. I have also taught preschool for ages 2.5 - 4. During my master’s program I interned as a therapist at an inpatient psychiatric hospital working with adults, teens, and kids. My ultimate goal is to become an independently licensed therapist. Our family has lived in Onslow County for 10 of the last 15 years, which has given my children a stability that is rare among military families. While NC has been my home for several years now, I am still a Yankee at heart! I will always choose a Philly cheesesteak over a pulled-pork sandwich. In addition to taking care of my family and my educational pursuits, I enjoy traveling to destinations near and far; a novel in which I can get lost; and chatting with friends over a good cup of coffee.

Other Onslow Parenting Resources


MomTalk is a place where moms can share, listen, learn or just enjoy. In establishing MomTalk, Onslow’s goal was to create an online community focused on healthy parenting. We’ll provide healthy information that moms can use, but ultimately we hope the moms in Onslow County will build MomTalk Forums in a place that is special and helpful for them. The entire online community will successfully grow as moms join and participate in Groups, follow Twitter posts or subscribe to any of the blogs (listed below). The more moms become active in any of these communities, the more healthy the community becomes. The MomTalk site itself is a starting point to explore all of Onslow’s social media destinations.
