Female Influencers Spring 2018: Nicole Grebloskie
Nicole Grebloskie enjoys giving back and promoting community pride, vitality, and partnerships so people can work together to create a great place to work, live, and play.
Although she once had thoughts of being a history professor, after graduating from West Chester University Grebloskie decided to join the workforce before applying to graduate school. She landed a job as an Account Representative at Arthur Hall Insurance and continued to follow this path. She’s now one of the partners at the firm, where she serves as Vice President of the Personal Lines Department. Her professional goals, she says, include continuing to increase her insurance knowledge and expertise so she can provide comprehensive advisory services and create insurance programs that cover all of their clients’ needs. Last year, Grebloskie obtained the Certified Advisor of Personal Insurance designation from the Wharton School.
Grebloskie leads a very full life outside the office as well. When she and her husband moved to Kennett Square in 2002, she says, “it was a natural transition for me to investigate different nonprofits and see where I could help.” She and her husband volunteered for the Kennett Brewfest and she joined the Historic Kennett Square special events committee. As she became more involved, she was appointed to the board of directors and spearheaded fundraising and special events efforts. She served as the HKS president in 2016 and 2017. For Grebloskie, it’s all about the partnerships that we make and can help create. “It’s important to me to raise a family in a vibrant cultural community,” she says, “where everyone has access to different resources —from community assistance programs to local establishments and recreational areas where they can enjoy their free time.”
As the daughter of Italian immigrants, Grebloskie has learned firsthand about what it means to take risks and make decisions that mold who we become. She places a strong value on hard work, planning, setting goals, learning from experience, and on focusing on the positive. And as a mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and team leader, she says, “I want to be the best version of me that I can be— knowing when to rise to a challenge, delegate or ask for assistance when necessary.”
