Hi! My name is Nicole Markel and I am the Resource Development Coordinator for Parks & Recreation… which is just a fancy way of saying that I work with community business partners on sponsorships for all of the amazing events & programs that are put on by my co-workers.

I love my job because I get to work with so many incredible people in our community that care deeply for Albany and help to make it a wonderful place to live by generously supporting things like River Rhythms, NW Art & Air Festival and Fun in the Park just to name a few.

I love to spend my time outside of work hiking, wine tasting and exploring our beautiful state. My husband David and I love to travel and visit new & exciting places!
