Nicole Cupic, Ph.D

Position: Owner, Executive Director

Family: I love being a mom to my amazing children. We spend a lot of time laughing together and making memories as they each are growing up right before my eyes.

Pets: 2 Dogs

Community: I  was a teacher for 12 years. God opened doors for me and I knew it was time to  start my journey to support patients and their families. I started as a Chaplain and then became a Social Worker, Volunteer Coordinator, Bereavement Coordinator, Marketing Director and then an  Executive Director. I always told myself if I made it to a leadership role, I would be very involved in my patients, their families  and helping staff members. I will always make time to get to know our sweet patients and  their families and walk this very difficult end of life journey out together. 

Hobby: Watching football and baseball! I love to fish and hunt. 

Why do you do what you do: Since I was a little girl, I have felt God guide me down this path. I received a PhD in Clinical Counseling with a Board Certification in Death/Dying Grief Therapy. 

Favorite quote: You have a purpose and you are loved.

Favorite verse:
Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

Education: Bachelor of Education 2004 from Concordia University

Why do you do what you do: I have always loved helping people…went into teaching and then stayed home after having my 2 second child. I felt like I was missing the thing I love to do and that is helping people. My sister-n-law came to me asking if I would like to open a Hospice company and I knew right then this was for me!
