Meet this year's Alumni Council and learn more about the people who volunteer with Lesley to represent our over 82,000 graduates.
Alumni Council President Nicole Bearse, J.D. ’00 became a member of the Alumni Council in July of 2008, and began her term as an officer on July 1, 2013. Nicole was the chair of the Alumni Awards Committee from 2010-2013, and also served on the scholarships committee from 2008-2013. Nicole obtained her Bachelors of Science Degree in Human Services in 2000, and went on to obtain her J.D. from the University of Kentucky in 2003. Nicole is a partner with the law firm of Johnson Newcomb, LLP in Frankfort, Kentucky, and has focused her practice in the area of family law since passing the bar exam in 2004. Nicole has also combined her legal expertise and the skills that she learned in her human services program at Lesley to become a successful mediator of both domestic and general civil litigation. Nicole believes that the solid foundation that she gained at Lesley, which included an appreciation for being a part of her community, and a need and want to assist people through tough times, has fueled her approach as a compassionate counselor at law. Nicole says that she “being part of the Lesley community has become a part of the fabric of my life, and I cannot imagine not wanting to be a part of every exciting thing that happens here.” 1st Vice PresidentJulie Farnam '05
