Nichole Ott


Nichole's time spent painting and drawing with her grandpa as a child fostered an early passion for art and creativity. She has since translated that passion into beautiful, functional advertising and web design for brands including Claire's, Kroger, Altar’d State, Jewelry Television and Nice Branding Agency. She came to Balcom bringing nine years of experience to work on Dairy MAX, Sinclair Oil and Smith+Nephew. Outside of work, Nichole admits she might have a bit of an obsession with boating: hitting Knoxville, Tennessee’s local waterways on the weekends and wakesurfing with friends. When she’s at home, she enjoys spending time with her Weimaraner, Hank, and boyfriend, Daniel. 


  • As a Barre fitness fanatic, Nichole has taken over 674 classes (and counting) at a local studio.
  • Growing up, Nichole was a competitive figure skater for 12 years and now coaches beginner classes in her free time.
  • If you’re ever on a video call with Nichole, you’re likely to see Hank hanging out in the background on “his” couch.
