ABOUT NICOLE SCHMIDT
We hear you like to travel, what is your favorite place to visit?
New York City is one of my favorite places ever to exist. I’m also lucky enough to call it my hometown. The energy that intertwines between the skyscrapers and rises from the concrete is unmatched. Everything about New York City is extraordinary. The way the city lights up like a jewelry box at night, the fast-paced lifestyle, and its diverse culture are all encapsulated in 22.82 square miles.
Tell us about Ruby and Ralphie
My little angels! Ruby is my 6-year-old Siberian Forrest cat who is 90% fluffy fur, and Ralphie is my long boy, a 14-week long-haired miniature dachshund. Ruby was adopted from the Jax Humane Society back in 2018, and she saves me every single day. I have never met a cat that is so sweet and loving and acts so much like a lap dog. She is my fluffy best friend. Ralphie, on the other hand, has mastered the puppy dog eyes and just radiates manipulation. I love him to bits. This is my first experience with a puppy, and I feel like I am a mother to a toddler, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
As much as I hate to do it, I also love it equally, spending money on everything and anything. Food, drinks, shopping, activities, travel, you name it. I enjoy checking out new restaurants because I am the world’s least pickiest eater. I will literally eat and drink anything, and I never turn down a good cocktail. I’m also really into fashion. I love putting new outfits together and expressing myself through my style. Travel has been a massive one for me recently! One year, I traveled to 7 cities and 1 country, including Breckenridge and Denver, Colorado, Budapest, Hungary, Montauk and Manhattan, New York, Nashville, Tennessee, and all over Tampa, Florida. On the other hand, I also love to work out, search for shark’s teeth on the beach, watch sunsets, curl up on the couch with my animals and binge-watch tv shows.
Are you TikTok famous?
I don’t mean to brag, but I did have one video that reached over 887,000 views and 94,000 likes. That’s it. Just that one. So no, I am not TikTok famous. But I do mindlessly scroll on that app for hours. I don’t even want to know my screen time for that app…
