Nicole has been a cherished member of the Compass family since June 2002 (almost 20 years!). She is a loving, caring, intelligent, and humorous young lady.
My first thought when I think of Nicole, is her love for the color purple! Nicole wears purple shirts, uses a purple pen, and loves her purple lotion from Bath and Body Works! If you’re wearing purple around her, chances are you’ll have a new found friend in no time!
Out of the 7 values at Compass, Nicole enjoys the value ‘community’ the most. Nicole has quite the busy social life. Monday thru Friday, she attends Tool Works Day Program, which she has also attended for over 15 years. Nicole loves going to her program every day and looks forward to attending. She has made many friends over the years there and loves her daily interactions and social activities the program offers. On Tuesdays, Nicole attends RADD moves, on Thursdays, Nicole attends Peer Development and on most weekends, she attends RADD activities with peers in her county, which includes movies, dinners, bowling, and sporting events.
Nicole also enjoys going out with her staff as often as she can. She enjoys going to Starbucks to get a parfait, the movies, dinner, bowling, going on walks, and visiting her parents on Sundays. Nicole always looks forward to her Sunday dinner visits and getting to spend some quality time with her parents. Nicole’s parents are great advocates for her, and are a very important part of Nicole’s life. Nicole also attends the Compass events, including the birthday celebrations, Bravo Buck events, and the holiday parties.
Nicole loves living independently in her own home in the community and loves meeting new people. She appreciates being a part of the Compass family and the support she receives from the SLS department. Chances are you will see Nicole at the next Compass event, so don’t be afraid to say hi!
