Celebrating Mother’s Day at GovCIO

  • Article

Juggling both career responsibilities and the joys of parenthood is both motivating and demanding. Within GovCIO, we take immense pride in the numerous working mothers who not only excel as valuable contributors and leaders for our clients but most importantly within their families. This Mother’s Day, our team members take a moment to reflect on how they’ve woven together their roles as mothers with their career.

Spotlight on Nichole Hahn

GovCIO Chief Human Resources Officer


Being a working mom has been a journey filled with chaos, overwhelm, and occasional guilt for Nichole. Despite her love for her career, she often wrestled with feelings of inadequacy, worrying she wasn’t doing or being enough for her daughters. However, beneath the stress, there was a deep sense of fulfillment knowing she was thriving in her professional life and serving as a role model for her girls.

As her youngest prepares to graduate and her oldest continues her college journey, Nichole finally feels a sense of relief. While she may have missed some school events, she’s grateful for the example she’s set for her daughters and the aspirations they now hold.

Outside of work, Nichole prioritizes spending time with her family, friends, and beloved dogs, as well as volunteering at the Friends of Homeless Animal Shelter in Aldie, VA. She enjoys staying active through workouts and golfing, but above all, she cherishes being present in the moment, focusing less on the past or future and more on enjoying the present.

Her “why” has evolved from personal satisfaction to creating a vision for her daughters, showing them that success and happiness are achievable through self-reliance and determination.

"I love my career and what I do but struggled because of the constant worry of not being enough, not doing enough or being present enough for my girls. But deep down, I was thrilled to be thriving in business and showing my daughters what an independent, happy mom looked like."

Outside of work, April embraces various activities that bring her joy and relaxation. She enjoys thrift shopping, exploring farmers markets, discovering new coffee shops or restaurants, tending to her garden, and spending quality time with her family on weekends.

When asked about her “why,” April’s answer is deeply rooted in her daughters. She sees everything she does as a reflection of her unwavering love and commitment to them. Just as her own mother provided strength, comfort, and unconditional love, April strives to do the same for her daughters, hoping they’ll carry on the tradition in their own future families.
