Born and raised in Oil City, Nicole Novicki now lives in Seneca and works for Venango County Human Services as a Unit Supervisor for Children & Youth Services.
After graduating from Oil City High School, she attended Clarion University, Venango, where she earned an associate’s degree in Criminal Justice, then went on to obtain a bachelor’s degree in psychology from main campus.
Nicole worked in Clarion County at Children and Youth Services for more than eight years and began her new career with Venango County Human Services in January 2019, also in Children & Youth Services. She has enjoyed making new connections in her home community.
She’s a mom of three and spends time taking her kids to various activities and being their “biggest cheerleader” at sporting events. She grew up along Oil Creek, and still appreciates the outdoors in our region, where she takes small trips looking for hidden gems.
Also in her free time, Nicole enjoys browsing real estate and checking out all the neat properties (both commercial and residential). Although she’s not able to invest now, she would love to see old buildings and homes in our area be brought back to life.
Nicole will always work in a field where she can help others and plans to continue assisting with service and communication gaps between human services departments, service providers, school districts, and community members.
“I love being part of a close-knit community and being able to serve the area I grew up in,” she said. “There are some large areas of need in our community, but there is also a lot of potential, given the right resources.”
