Meet The Team
Executive Director and Founder
Nicole Sirotek, RN
Nicole Sirotek is known as The Original New York Nurse whistleblower. In May 2020 she traveled to NYC at the beginning of the Covid Pandemic to help, she didn't expect to find gross negligence, complete medical mismanagement, and blatant disregard for human life that she saw in those inner-city hospitals. After a video of her begging for help to save her patient's life went viral, her life as she previously knew it was destroyed. Nicole made a promise to herself that she would continue to fight to help patients receive safe equitable care, so she founded the American Frontline Nurses a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to advocating for patients.

Karen has worked with the public since she was 16 years old. The last 14 years she worked at a healthcare facility serving the underserved such as migrant farmworkers and low-income families. She loved her job there working for the public as the contact person for local resources and one of the few in-person assistants in the community. She has always had a soft spot for people when it comes to helping and many times being their voice. Karen is fluent in both English and Spanish and she enjoyed spending time with her family and close friends. Her babies are her motivators and the reason for me to continue to help the vulnerable as much as she can.
