Nicole Ford, Teaching Assistant

Hi! I'm a senior majoring in mathematics and computer science. I grew up in Everett, just 30 miles north of Seattle, and love the beautiful Pacific Northwest. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, cooking, getting out in the great outdoors, and eating pizza. I'm happy to be home after six months of internships in California - Seattle is a great place to be!

I am a second year student here at the UW. I was born and raised here in Washington, living in Lynnwood for pretty much my entire life. One of the things I enjoy doing is traveling. This last summer I got the chance to explore Taiwan and Korea and had an amazing time! I also love playing all kinds of sports like snowboarding, basketball, tennis, and many more.
