I’m Nicole Peery, a desert-dwelling, small-space living, craft beer-loving artist and writer.

I’ve spent the last 15 years working in different areas of healthcare and technology.

With lots of writing and creative projects sprinkled in: front-end development, content writing, UX design, database management, technical support, and student mentorship at a coding school.

These days my time is spent writing, learning new skills, and figuring out what’s next.

Outside of my work, you’ll find me camping, watching nerdy documentaries, and seeking the tastiest Sonoran food my beautiful home in southern Arizona has to offer.

My Experience

  • Most recently, I was a technical support engineer for an ad management company. I left that job in the thick of the pandemic because my traveling healthcare worker spouse needed my support.
  • At 35 years old, I went back to school at Treehouse and learned UX design and front-end web development. After I graduated, they brought me on as an independent contractor to mentor students and help manage a Slack community.
  • I spent three years as an independent contractor for a flexible job searching website, editing job listings according to a style guide and writing SEO meta descriptions so jobseekers could find new roles. To date, it’s one of the most rewarding things I’ve done.
  • I worked in multiple hospitals and for the largest 3rd party healthcare technology management company doing everything from regulatory affairs to medical device management.

My Values


My approach to life is laid back. I always seek the humor in every situation.


I will recognize where people are on their journeys. I will never forget that I started as a beginner.


I will always share my perspective, create new things, and walk my own path.


I strive to push myself further and approach all things head on and head up.
