Nicole is Tunehouse’s receptionist and friendly face of the business. Always ready with a smile, she will most likely be the first person customers see when they step into our immaculate workshop. Before Nicole joined Tunehouse, she admittedly knew very little about cars – a fact the team took on board to remedy! In her spare time, Nicole is a devoted Bulldogs supporter while spending her extra time with friends and family. She has yet to own a car but since working at Tunehouse, she has been seen eyeing our project car – the Tunehouse prepared Toyota 86!
