Because we missed celebrations for Care Managers Week back in March, we'd like to celebrate this week instead. Today we're featuring Katie Nickoles, a Senior Regional Care Manager! Katie was drawn to the position of Care Manager because she enjoys using her clinical knowledge to assess patients and how FutureCare can meet their needs for long term care. On a typical day, Katie also works closely with the families of patients, offering virtual tours of our facilities. She also used to go to the hospital to visit the families directly. In addition to working with patients, she also participated in many marketing initiatives with different departments educating them about FutureCare's programs. Getting to know patients beyond their illness puts a smile on her face, and she loves seeing them work towards their rehab goals.
Outside of work, Katie loves running early in the morning and baking. She even wants to open her own bakery one day! She has two children who keep her busy, and they're preparing for a new puppy later this month. In her time with FutureCare, Katie has forged strong friendships with her coworkers and she views them as an extension of her family. Katie is definitely part of our family here at FutureCare, and we thank her for her dedication!
