Nicole Palestro


[cell_text]Nicole Palestro has lived in Colorado all her life and has had no desire to live anywhere else. At the present time she is the majority owner of a mitigation company, Healthy Forest Mitigation, so she is usually cutting down trees from 8 to 5 seven days a week. Nicole is married with two children ages 21 and 17. She could say 3 children if you include her husband. When she does find free time, she loves to hang out with her kids, garden, teach new wildland firefighters and be a pain to her husband, Rich. She joined Lyons Fire because she wanted to be involved in a fire department.  Nicole loves the comradery and feels most of the volunteers she meets are really great people. When asked about volunteering for Lyons, Nicole stated, “I also enjoy being a part of a small community.  When small towns, like Frederick, get bigger they tend to lose a lot of their charm.” [/cell_text]
