Willow Center staff

Executive Director

Nicole Sotkiewicz

Nicole began her work in the non-profit sector as a 20-year-old House Manager for the Crisis Shelter for Women and Children. She received her B.A. in Apparel Merchandising and Textiles from WSU in 2015 and immediately began working for Zulily in Seattle. However, she quickly found a volunteer outlet as a Camp Counselor for Project Goodtimes. That involvement in enriching lives spurred her to begin a career in pediatric grief support with Providence Hospice as the Coordinator for Camp Erin. For several years there, she coordinated and directed Camp Erin in both King and Snohomish counties. Recently, she had been serving as Assistant Director of Volunteer Services and Annual Giving for Pullman Regional Hospital. In her free time, she enjoys going on adventures with her husband, daughter, and golden retriever. Nicole is passionate about building partnerships that enable the Willow Center to have an impact in the lives of all those who need it.
