She is a San Luis Obispo County native and has extensive experience in the medical field. She has worked in physician offices in podiatry, pain management, dermatology and pediatric care.

“Nicole’s background is a tremendous asset to our community outreach team,” said Bob Freeman, CenCal Health CEO.

“We’re glad to have a local resident with her experience representing our team in the community, especially in San Luis Obispo,” Freeman said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
