Nichole A. Williams, Ed.S, LMHC, NCC, is a highly-skilled speaker, coach, and counselor who teaches in the Communication, Professional, and Computer Skills department at the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University. A proud three-time alumna of IU, Nichole earned a Bachelor of Science in Business from Kelley as well as a Master of Science and an Education Specialist degree in mental health counseling; both from the IU School of Education.
In between her undergraduate and graduate degrees, Nichole spent 10 years in business working in the dental distribution, publishing, corporate training, and environmental fields. Since then, she has worked in career development as an Assistant Director at IU’s Career Development Center and as the Director of Alumni Career Services at the IU Alumni Association. In 2013, she returned to Kelley in a faculty role where she helped design (and still teaches) Kelley Compass, a student talent management course that guides students in finding the area of business that aligns with their work values, personality, interests, and skills. Students then learn how to develop their personal brand and how to present that brand to employers.
A Licensed Mental Health Counselor and National Certified Counselor, Nichole enjoys serving as the faculty advisor for Balance at Kelley; Kelley’s student mental health group aimed at education, support, and reducing the stigma surrounding mental health. Most recently, her interest in the science of Positive Psychology has led her to teach courses in the topic in which 100% of her students recommend her class to other Kelleys and routinely share how much the class has improved their lives.
