Nicole DesOrmeaux


Nicole Davis DesOrmeaux is the founder of DesOrmeaux Group, a fundraising firm that works directly with political campaigns and nonprofit organizations. She received her bachelor’s degree in public relations from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and has 19 years of professional experience in communications, event planning, fundraising, design, budget administration, governance, and policy work.

“My goal is to help clients realize success by fashioning strategic alliances between potential donors and special causes or candidates running for office. My professional reward is the satisfaction of achieving defined objectives on behalf of clients. It is important to me to help the right candidate, for the right political office at the right time.”

Prior to founding DesOrmeaux Group, she worked for almost 8 years with the Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, now known as One Acadiana. She also served as the Administrative Director of the Leadership Institute of Acadiana. “I truly believe in creating unique experiences because no two clients are the same.”

Leadership & Volunteer Efforts
“These experiences helped empower me to branch out, find issues that I’m passionate about, and put my energy into making a positive impact in my community.” I also enjoy volunteering at my children’s schools, dance, and sports activities.
