Nicholas Heigl

Nicholas Heigl

Nicholas Heigl is Forever Friends the Crematorium Supervisor, where he has been working since 2016. He has been working in the animal-care industry for six years and is certified by New York State. When asked why he chose this career, he said “I take comfort in knowing that I’m in a position to help people through what might be the most difficult experiences one can have, losing a beloved pet. Though my background in working in animal shelters, I was happy to be able to help people welcome a new family member into their lives, and now I’m able to help them through the process of ending their journey through life together.”

Nicholas has three pets of his own: a cat named Pickles and two rabbits named Ghost and Goblin. Outside of work, you can find him cycling, hiking, and playing with his pets.
