California Girl

Nicole grew up in the Construction Industry helping her father build homes in California. Never wanting to sit on the sidelines Nicole was involved in every aspect of the building process from operating machinery, framing, and finish work.

As Nicole grew up, married, and started her family her entrepreneurial passions took over as she witnessed the hills she loved and grew up in were being destroyed because of drought and wildfires. Thus the creation of the National Storage Tank brand to help California and now the world solve the issue of water storage and a tremendous advocate of being prepared for whatever Mother Nature has in store. There needed to be a better solution and one that would protect the most valuable resource in any community, water!

Giving back To Communities She Loves
