A former U.S. Diplomat turned professional skydiver, Mayor Nicole Condrey brings her global breadth of leadership experience to our city 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 Middletown 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 an advocate for the work of 501(c)(3) non-profit Concussion Legacy Foundation’s brain research and brain donations through Project Enlist, where Nicole and others have pledged to donate their brains to science.
Having accumulated over 1,800 jumps, Nicole now serves as the General Manager at Start Skydiving based at the Middletown Regional Airport and continues to bring national pride and inspiration into stadiums and venues around the world through her performances with Team Fastrax. In 2019, she qualified as a member of the U.S. Parachute Team and will represent the U.S. in Siberia, Russia for the equivalent of the skydiving Olympics in August 2020. She lives by her late husband’s mantra of “Never Stop Inspiring” and looks forward to sharing that passion during her time as Mayor of our great city. “Blue Skies over Middletown!”
