Nicole Dorris
Finance/Advancement Chair, NLC Nashville

With nearly 15 years of fundraising experience, Nicole Dorris works hard to make sure progressive organizations have the resources they need to be successful.

A Wilson County native and a Western Kentucky University graduate with a B.A. in Political Science, Nicole began her career in progressive politics right out of college after being accepted in to the Emily’s List Campaign Corp program. After that first campaign experience she was hooked and has been working with progressive campaigns ever since.

Nicole served as Finance Director for the Karl Dean for Governor campaign in 2018. Prior to working for Karl Dean, Nicole was based in Washington, DC and worked as a fundraising consultant with House and Senate campaigns across the country to help them achieve their fundraising goals. She also served as Deputy PAC Director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for the 2007-2008 cycle.

Nicole lives in Nashville and when not at work raising progressive money she enjoys spending time with her family, especially her amazing niece and nephew.
