Nicole Divers is a data specialist, working with the strategic research team at PLF to provide accessible and comprehensible data to aid in analysis and inform the public.
Her passion for liberty was first sparked after being gifted a copy of The Thomas Sowell Reader by her father when she was in high school. Since then, she has been an active member of the liberty movement and an ardent defender of the fundamental rights of life, liberty, and property.
Nicole believes that data can be a powerful tool in informing and persuading the public on important issues. In the age of short-form content, her skills in acquiring, cleaning, and visualizing data elevate the work of the strategic research team and spark interest in their findings from a broader audience.
Prior to PLF, Nicole worked at R Street Institute, where she provided supporting analysis on the Child Tax Credit. During her time at R Street, she completed the Koch Associate Program, in which she worked on a capstone project that focused on suicide awareness.
An avid Tar Heel fan, Nicole received a BA in political science and economics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She currently resides in North Carolina with her dog, Dottie. She is a proud Slytherin and a big fantasy fan; in her free time, she enjoys writing and reading fantasy novels.
