Nicole Wallick is the founder of Kosciusko Community TNR, INC., an all-volunteer nonprofit organization whose primary focus is to address cat overpopulation in Kosciusko County through public awareness and spay/neuter efforts. Her love for animals, especially cats, is what drove Nicole to create this nonprofit organization.  

Nicole grew up in Seymour, Indiana but moved to Columbus, Ohio where she met her husband, Mike, in 1993. In 2004, they made the move to Warsaw, Indiana where Nicole has some family roots. Nicole and her husband have been married for 25 years and together they have two kids; Ian, who is a sophomore at Purdue University and Jillian who is a 7th grader at Edgewood. She’s a full-time licensed social worker and has worked with those struggling with addictions for nearly 20 years. When she’s not working or running her nonprofit, Nicole loves to go antiquing.  

If you’d like to help support Kosciusko Community TNR, INC., consider donating to their organization. Donations from the community are what keep this organization running, so any amount is always appreciated! 

When asked to share a word of advice for other women wanting to start their own business, Nicole said,

“Don’t be intimidated by the paperwork process. Don’t allow other people to steal your joy. Learn to embrace patience. Be kind in the face of adversity because there will be adversity! And celebrate your victories, no matter how small!”
