Meet Nicole Bruno

 

Nicole BrunoSpecializing in social work, and long-care I am the co-founder of Guiding Lights, a charity that supports caregivers who are providing care to adults, typically older adults with chronic conditions.

 

My perspective on what it is like to be both a professional and personal caregiver (having cared for my grandfather and a friend) serves as a constant reminder of why I get up every day to continue to do the work that I do to serve our community.

 

When not working I enjoy spending time with my children and fiancé on our family farm.
