MEET NICOLE, OEM’s NEW TEAM MEMBER
On Friday, April 13, 2018 Nicole Hawley joined our Emergency Management team as a Program Specialist. Nicole comes to us from the City of Hartford, where over the past 10 years she held various roles, including Public Health Emergency Preparedness Coordinator for the City of Hartford Health and Human Services Department. During her time there, she played a key role in the overseeing of all sheltering efforts during major storms; employee trainings; and monitoring all federal and state contract deliverables and reporting. Nicole also worked one-on-one with the State of Connecticut and Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), when monitoring travelers who were coming into the State of Connecticut from high-risked countries. But in her most recent role, her focus was on the health and safety of homes in Hartford, by assisting low-income homeowners in obtaining grants through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and other funding sources to fix up the housing stock and make homes safe.
Nicole has a strong background in community outreach, communications, and program development. She holds a Bachelors of Arts from Central Connecticut State University and a Master’s of Science from Springfield College in Organization Management and Leadership.
