Nicole Boudrow studied psychology at UMass Lowell. Originally entering the University in the music program, it took one psychology class to learn that human services was the career field for her. She began her career in human services 12 years ago as an in-home therapist for children on the autism spectrum.

Nicole started her career at Communitas as the Day Habilitation Director in 2017. Having worked with children for the majority of her career, she was excited for the change. In 2019, Nicole transitioned to the director of the Career Services Program. Helping people become job ready and helping individuals gain career independence is incredibly exciting and rewarding for Nicole.

The Career Services Program at Communitas is an innovative program that combines on-site job training and group supportive opportunities for individuals to become job ready, including performing well at job interviews, dressing for success and creating meaningful relationships with their coworkers and peers. These groups are done both in the program and in the community.
