Our Caring, Committed Staff: Nicole Smolko-Jaser
What is your favorite part of working at Youville?
“I love the small, close-knit feel of the community; I like being able to greet everyone by name.”
“My absolute favorite part is interacting with our amazing residents, particularly my Courtyard family. I love learning about their incredible lives, and most of all I love making them smile.”
What is a piece of advice you would give your younger self?
“The only person in life you can control is yourself. You can’t control how others speak or act, and you can’t make people care when they don’t. Keep your focus on doing your own personal best by your own standards and you will be happy with yourself.”
What do you think makes Youville unique?
“The spirit of the Grey Nuns breathes a sense of warmth and community throughout Youville that you would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.”
“The fact that this community is rooted in faith and the values of the Grey Nuns strengthens our call to serve all who may enter our care.”
What’s one thing people don’t know about you that they would be surprised to find out?

What’s on your bucket list?
