Nicole Acker is a great example of strength personified. She enjoys life to the full and all the challenges and blessings that are thrown her way. She remains as positive as possible to maximise all opportunities. Her mission is to influence and encourage as many as possible to live a life consistent with "Kaizen.' This is a philosophy that sees improvement in productivity as a gradual and methodical process. Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning "small changes for the better".
