Connect With Niccole Caan

Niccole Caan originally wanted to be a giraffe when she grew up, but her parents finally convinced her that endeavor wasn't a viable career. Instead, she decided to study journalism.

She graduated from Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism. She then packed up all she learned, grabbed a cute pair of shoes, left her parent's nest near Chicago and headed to Georgia for her first reporting job. Southern hospitality kept her there three years.

Wanderlust then struck and she went to Japan to teach English. She was forced to learn Japanese or continue to buy mysterious items at the grocery store. She lived close to the beach, so she took up surfing and SCUBA diving, despite a disastrous encounter with a jelly fish. School in Japan is year around, so during the long breaks she traveled around Asia and Europe. She also discovered she had a special talent for attracting strange and mysterious diseases on every trip and now has vast knowledge of most countries' medical systems.

Niccole returned to the States mostly in one piece and with just a few parasites. She returned to reporting and worked at several stations in Indiana, mainly as an education reporter. She then did a stint in public relations for various educational groups before returning to graduate school at Northwestern.

ABC 7 gave her the opportunity to return again to reporting. She is dedicated to covering the Panhandle Spirit with passion, creativity and style. She enjoys studying languages, traveling, weight lifting, cooking, eating out when the meals don't turn out well, hockey and diving.
