Nicolette Francey Asselin grew up in a rural medieval village, in Switzerland akin Clarendon.

“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.”

As a board member of CorpWell Foundation, she is involved in several preservation projects. Her goal is to give narratives, natural and historical assets a prominent place in the community. She also spearheaded the preservation of a rural area in Kentucky, with Heavenly View Farm, a Green House learning center, and the Howard Mill Area Preservation. 

I feel that Clarendon offers a wonderful feel of rural and pastoral beauty. I want to be part of preserving it.
