Nicole Nabulsi Nosek spent 15 years working in senior roles, from co-campaign manager to communications director, on American campaigns at the federal, state and local level. To date, Nicole and the organization have successfully worked with legislators and coalitions to enact two landmark land use laws in the state of Texas (3rd party Review) and the city of Austin (three homes bi-right on one lot). She grew passionate about housing while she worked as a paralegal making just below $50,000 per year, where she could only afford to live with a family with a baby along with another roommate. She recognized the role limited supply had on not only on the lower income, but the missing middle as well. This led her to work and volunteer for housing causes since 2015 .
In 2018, Nicole co-managed and won one of the most competitive American campaigns for Congress. She graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a B.S. in Political Science and B.A. in Rhetoric. She is the Chair of the Austin Habitat for Humanity Advocacy Committee. She resides in greater Austin, TX with her two kids and husband.
