Nicole Will is our host and founder of willGather. Born into a family of story-tellers, as Nicole’s dad is a documentary filmmaker, she felt called to ask the questions and tell the stories. She's most happy in the role of cheerleading for others and sharing the good work that they are doing in the world, and all for her favorite group of people-our elders.

When Nicole was younger, their grandma came to live with her family and became one of her closest friends- seeing what life looked like as you age and what changes can take place. It was a gift to be able to have a front-row seat on having a loved one live out their final chapter and leave a legacy. Nicole found that the one unifying outlook that we all need is hope: the joy of something to look forward to, whether it’s a visit from a loved one or friend, a party, a game, or a show. Our hope is to create a sense of community, inspiring a vision of life-long learning and engagement. Inspired by this passion, she went on to earn a Bachelors of Science degree in Human Services: Social Gerontology and became Activity Director Certified with NCCAP, working for many years as a Director in a senior living facility overseeing their Therapeutic Recreation, Volunteer and Spiritual Care Departments and as a private elderly care companion. She is the founder of which is dedicated to enhancing the well-being of our aging community by connecting Activity Directors and Therapeutic Recreation Professionals with vendors, venues, and others in the senior living industry.
