Nicole Jenkins

Bio

Nicole Jenkins was born and raised in inner city North St. Louis. Jenkins proved undeterred and undaunted in her desire to overcome all obstacles. Passionate about education, community and justice, Nicole took advantage of the voluntary de-seg program to attend public schools in an affluent area. Her wit and will carried her well through her studies but her geography kept her grounded in the stark reality that too many poor and impoverished neighborhoods know: it’s a cold hard world for the ignored and forgotten. These experiences shaped her honest, straightforward passion to build a stronger healthcare, housing and employment system in impoverished neighborhoods. Nicole served as the Vice President of the National Honor Society - Phi Theta Kappa during college. Her most enjoyable studies were Sociology and Political Science. She is also a well-known local media celebrity in her own right, having hosted numerous local broadcast television and radio programs focusing on community development issues. In 2016, Nicole produced a hit show featured on ABC 30 “Back on the Block by Nikki J” that reached over 10,000 households, along with starting a scholarship foundation that awards three Seniors from Sumner High School. Jenkins feels that It’s important to give back to those who can’t do anything for others.

Nicole Jenkins sits on the Board of Directors for the American Health Task Force and is a Sumner High School Community Liaison member.

Fast Forward. Nicole is the founder and Director of Veterans Advantage Urgent Care. A sub speciality Urgent Care solely for Veterans and the first of it’s kind in the nation.
