Kora M. Michaud
Licensed Apprentice 

Kora joined us here at the Cournoyer Funeral Home in April of 2021. She is a new Cheshire County resident having recently moved to New Hampshire from Massachusetts after developing a great attraction for the community she is now serving.

Kora began studying Health Occupations in 2009 at Montachusett Regional Vocational High School and earned her certification as a Nursing Assistant and Medical Assistant.  She began working in the medical care field in 2011.

Her passion for serving the community she called home, drove her to working in several Long-Term Care facilities before she found her calling in Hospice care.  She spent the next seven years with a private hospice agency in Massachusetts, where she gained experience with families suffering from the loss of a loved one. During this time, Kora also worked with the developmentally disabled in various settings including in-home care, and within programs in the state of Massachusetts.

Her passion for helping with families dealing with mourning lead her to the Cournoyer Funeral Home. She began attending FINE Mortuary Institute in May of 2021 after graduating from Mount Wachusett Community College.  Kora began her apprenticeship here after becoming licensed in November of 2021.

Kora is the proud mother of three spectacular children.  Outside of her passion for work, parenting and education, she enjoys traveling to new locations to discover new eatery’s, reading all the literature she can make the time for, writing, and just about any outdoor activity a native born New Englander can take part in.
