Title: Timely Testing

 

Nicole Nance is a third generation Northern Nevadan.  She holds both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Social Work from UNR.  She has been a Licensed Social Worker in Nevada since 1998.  Additionally, Nicole has a minor in Substance Abuse Technology.

Her career path has been through both State and County agencies involving child welfare, prison populations and substance abuse, until she opened her first business in 2005.  Timely Testing is her second successful business, operating statewide, 24/7, 365 days of the year.

Nicole’s passion for life, her friends and the outdoors, supplement a drive to perform at a peak level in her career.  Timely Testing, founded in 2013, started in rural Nevada with the owners and one part-time employee.  Now Timely Testing is operating statewide with a dozen employees.  Nicole’s business savvy has afforded Timely Testing the opportunity to expand their services beyond drug and alcohol testing to include policy development and training for employers.
