Austin and Nicole met in high school through mutual friends. They remained friends through high school and during Nicole's time in undergrad. Austin would visit Nicole in undergrad, attending her choir concerts and equestrian vaulting performances. They were always really good friends. After graduation, Nicole was heading off to veterinary school on the island of Grenada, West Indies.

Nonetheless, Austin was persistent, and she is so thankful that he was.
