Jolene Lucas, Sales & Marketing Director

Jolene prefers the friendlier nickname of "Jo". She is delighted to have joined the Avalon team as the Sales and Marketing Director and says she looks forward to a fun and exciting future with the residents and staff of Avalon. Jo has worked in the healthcare field since the mid 1980's. Her desire has always been to make a positive impact for those she serves every day. Jo says when all is said and done, it is often the residents and families have a positive impact on her, which is a great motivator to go above and beyond to be the best she can be. Prior to joining the Avalon Team, Jo worked in Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living, Home Care, and Hospice in the greater Madison area. She is an Iowa girl who moved to Wisconsin after college. Jo and husband, Randy now call Lake Mills their home. They have 2 grown children, but don’t consider themselves "empty nesters" yet thanks to their array of wonderful pets.

Nicole Guichard, Activities Director

Nicole is pleased to be the new Activities Director at Avalon. When she started working in a skilled nursing facility, she fell in love with the residents and the job. She enjoys working side by side with the residents and sharing her talents as an artist. She has been painting glass, wood, and metal for the past 13 years. Nicole grew up in Chicago, but moved to Wisconsin when she was 16, so she is nearly a native. In her spare time, Nicole loves to paint and garden. She is eager to get to know the residents of Avalon and enhance their social enjoyment.
