“You have to have passion for people and care about their needs.”

Today, at age 39, Nicosia is a mother of four and owner-operator of multiple Southeast Wisconsin businesses under the name of Golden Path. She established Golden Path Senior Living in 2010, an adult family home providing 24-hour room/board with care and supervision, followed by Golden Path Home Care in 2013 (with three other office locations) providing customized lifestyle services.

Ms. King also has several other businesses under her belt, such as contracting, real estate, and licenses for CBRF training and certifications. Nicosia started in agriculture in 2019 and opened a retail storefront name Euphoria Wellness Boutique, providing Hemp/CBD. She furthered her journey in agriculture in Oklahoma and became a farmer focusing on Organic Aquaponics.
