About us / Who we are

Nicole Adams (Owner/President, Hon. B. Sci, MBA)

Nicole has over 20 years of experience working in various entrepreneurial enterprises, starting with a neighbourhood paper route when she was 6 years old, to a music tutoring business that she launched while still in university. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in 2003, and worked at as a Sales Manager & Marketing Director for a boutique active travel company for three years. Wanting to expand her horizons, she returned to the University of Toronto for an Honours Bachelor of Science in Psychology, which she completed in 2008. She launched TGN Consulting in 2009, realizing her true dream was to help other people fulfill their entrepreneurial potential.

Nicole has worked with a wide range of prospective entrepreneurs, in fields ranging from pharmaceutical manufacturing, to pet store franchise ownership, to landscaping, to musical engineering. Her specialty is “outside the box” thinking, and is always exploring new solutions to old problems. She enjoys meeting interesting and dynamic people, discussing new innovative ideas, and has a particular affinity for both traditional and social media marketing.

During her spare time, she enjoys watching her beloved Blue Jays during the summer, hiking in green areas north of the city, playing acoustic guitar, or travelling around the world on new and exciting adventures.

Jessica Wallace (Vice-President of Marketing, Hon B.Sci)

Jessica has worked with TGN since 2019, and has recently been promoted to Vice-President of Marketing. Beginning as a brand developer, Jessica has been responsible for some of our largest clients, and is primarily responsible for advanced research and development to boost our clients’ online marketing strategies.

Jessica has an appreciation for fashion, and is easily the best-dressed member of our team.

Michael Anderson (Vice-President of Operations, BCom, CPA, CA)

Michael has worked with TGN Consulting since 2012, shortly after completing his Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Toronto. While working at TGN, Michael completed his CA designation (now CPA) and specialized in strategic planning and financial analysis. Michael’s resume includes an internship at Deloitte, and, prior to joining TGN Consulting, worked in the accounting department at Heenan Blaikie. (He still claims that leaving HB to join TGN was the smartest decision he’s ever made).

His affinity for numbers makes him a natural baseball fan, and he spends his spare time kayaking or rock climbing whenever possible.

Amber Tucker (Brand Developer, B.A.)

Amber is one of our longest-serving Brand Developers, and has been with TGN since 2016. She oversees many of our critical online projects, and brings a strong creative element to our team. She has a degree in Psychology from York University, which she draws from frequently when assessing and designing social media campaigns.

Amber has an affinity for social justice, and enjoys working closely with our non-profit clients, as well as other businesses hoping to change the world for the better.
