Nicole resides in Doylestown, Pennsylvania with her husband Bob and two adult daughters, Kate and Jaci. She has been employed at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish for the past ten years. Nicole has seen the sadness and destruction the opioid epidemic has created within families locally in her faith community and is aware of the losses globally.
Nicole continues to educate herself in the field of addictive behaviors through workshops and seminars. She also facilitates prayer groups so she can offer some guidance and courage to those struggling with their loved ones' addictions. After attending the We Thirst™ Series, Nicole was empowered and knew involvement with Nina Corona was meant to be. She currently volunteers her time to coordinate the AFIRE™ Prayer Intentions.
