Nicolette Francey Asselin grew up in the medieval town of Grandson in Switzerland at the foot of the Jura Mountains, home to original Swiss watchmakers.

Nicolette is currently a Board of Director for CorpWell Foundation. She lives in South Florida and has been active, in the past ten years, in her community to ensure that the Inlet Village keeps its narratives and precious artifacts. She was involved in starting, with others, the Clarendon Historical Society in Vermont and is the curator for this town’s rich past with Clarendon Heritage. She spearheaded the preservation of a rural area in Kentucky, with  Heavenly View Farm and a Green House learning center and the Howard Mill Area Preservation. Presently, she serves on the Town of Jupiter Historic Resource Board.

“Surrounded by treasures of history as a youngster,  I always felt a need to contribute to preserving our past. I believe that our surroundings are essential to people’s identity and need to take a bigger part in education to ground new generations and give them a sense of belonging.”
