A former U.S. Diplomat turned professional skydiver, Middletown Ohio Mayor Nicole Condrey brings her global breadth of leadership experience to Middletown in a unique fashion. She prides herself in inspiring individuals and organizations to reach outside their comfort zones, have the courage to abandon “Plan A”, and execute the dreams that get them out of bed each morning. She is dedicated to economic growth and quality of life in southwest Ohio and promotes accountability, communications, and connecting the dots in our energetic city, surrounding communities, and beyond. Nicole was raised in Cary, Illinois and holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame. She moved to Washington, DC and worked as a civilian electrical engineer for the U.S. Department of the Army starting in 2004 and transitioned to work for the U.S. Department of State as a Foreign Service Officer until 2019, collectively serving tours in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Sudan. An avid outdoor adventure-seeker, Nicole met her husband Ron Condrey (USN EODC, Ret.) while learning to jump out of airplanes. Their shared love of the sport, combined with a passion for inspiring Americans, honoring our veterans/first responders, and displaying our nation’s colors while under parachute relocated them in 2017 to Middletown, Ohio: home of Team Fastrax, “America’s Skydiving Team”. During this transition, Nicole made it her mission to assist her husband Ron in recovery from Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) resulting from his military service, ultimately losing him to suicide in 2018. With Ron as her consummate inspiration, she is a member of the Veterans Advisory Board for 501(c)(3) non-profit Concussion Legacy Foundation, where Nicole and others have pledged to donate their brains to science through the Project Enlist program. Having accumulated over 2,300 jumps, Nicole currently serves as an independent contractor for Team Fastrax, Start Skydiving, and Jump Institute (a team building and leadership entity), all based at the Middletown Regional Airport, and continues to bring national pride and inspiration into stadiums and venues around the world through her aerial performances. In 2019, she qualified as a member of the U.S. Parachute Team and will represent the United States on the international stage. She lives by her late husband’s mantra of “Never Stop Inspiring” and enjoys sharing that passion during her time as Mayor. “Blue Skies over Middletown!”
