Our Team

At ARCH Hospice we are proud to have a caring team of staff, physicians and volunteers. Our physicians and nursing staff work closely with a team of other professionals and volunteers to care for our residents, 24 hours a day. 

Care Team

Our Care Team is comprised of Nurses, Personal Support Workers, Physicians, and a Nurse Practitioner. Alongside volunteers, our team creates a supporting environment for our residents and their families. Recognizing the importance of self-care and ongoing learning, we all participate in annual training and wellness activities that continue to develop our skills.

Leadership Team

Christianne Monico

Nicole is a longtime member of the ARCH team - she started as a volunteer at the hospice the first year ARCH opened its doors. Working with staff and volunteers, Nicole oversees finances, office administration and maintenance. You can catch her anywhere from the office, to the boiler rooms, staining the building, or even fixing someone's laptop. A true jill-of-all-trades, she is a true master of organization and a calm multitasker. She is responsible for ensuring all internal ARCH operations run smoothly. She is an avid runner and has a love of fishing and traditional archery.

Having spent the last 20 years as a dental hygienist, Julie is a proud mom of three beautiful children, and enjoys hiking, volleyball and yoga.
