An Austin native, Nicole Foster Callahan earned her BFA in Theatre at Texas State. Afterward she headed for Hollywood where for nearly a decade Nicole studied acting at some of the most accredited studios in the industry while working steadily in TV and commercials. Some of her most noteworthy credits include Friday Night Lights, How I Met Your Mother and Days of Our Lives.  

Nicole’s talent for coaching became so trusted by her friends and colleagues that she decided to open her own studio in LA, called Acting UP Network, which quickly became a go-to venue for agents and managers to send their brightest young talent. 

In 2016 the opportunity of a lifetime pulled Nicole and her family from the West Coast to the Heartland.  While she traded palm trees for a puffer coat, Nicole doesn’t intend on trading a promising career as a teacher and mentor. What she learned from her time in LA is she’s happiest when helping others crush their goals. Whether you want to light up the local stage, head west for the Hollywood lights or simply overcome your fear of public speaking she is super excited to contribute to your success!
