Meet Your Academic Advisor: Nicole Cuthbert
Nicole embraces diversity and prioritizes the needs of the individual. She is devoted to assisting students in the discovery of their optimal academic path in the exciting field of Biology.
As an academic advisor to undergraduate, Nicole spends her days interacting with and listening to students, offering direction, encouragement, and support. With her extensive knowledge of the department’s programs, courses, schedules, and faculty, she guides students into understanding all their options and what resources are available.
Nicole joined the administrative staff of Brigham Young University in 2016. She has been working as an academic advisor and administrator in the Department of Biology since 2018. Prior to her current position, she worked as an administrative secretary in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry. Before her career extended to BYU, Nicole was self-employed running her own event company.
Her volunteer experiences include serving as a court-appointed special advocate for neglected children with oversight from the Third District Court of Utah, mentoring and supporting patients as a Survivor Offering Assistance in Recovery at the University of Utah Burn Unit, and a committee member for the Riverton City Board of Adjustment. She has served in many capacities in the Church, leading both youth and adults, and playing key leadership roles in four pioneer treks.
Passionate about education, Nicole earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from BYU and a master’s degree in academic advising from Kansas State University. She has instilled this same yearning for learning in her children, with a son and daughter already graduated from BYU, one daughter currently studying at BYU, and another completing her degree through BYU-Idaho.
