Nicoli Bowley is an Administrative Assistant at the Center of the American West. She first became involved with the Center as a research assistant while completing her undergraduate degree in history and communication. She wrote her honors thesis on Colorado history, and has had several opportunities to apply her knowledge of the past to modern-day issues through her work at the Center. With plans of pursuing a higher degree in history, she is ever-appreciative of the work she gets to be a part of at the Center. As a proud Colorado native, Nicoli never misses a chance to enjoy the outdoors, or to brag about the beauty of it!
