Ellen Jebb Curelop is the President of Life Coping, Inc. Case Management Services and Village Network.
Ellen, a New Hampshire native, graduated from Skidmore College with a degree in Nursing. She worked as a public health nurse in New York City and as a clinical instructor in the former Memorial Hospital in Nashua and later at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
In 1994, Ellen founded Life Coping Inc. (LCI) a case management agency originally established to work with the chronically ill elderly and adult disabled. It has since expanded its services to the developmentally disabled and mentally ill.
As an active member in her community and the State, Ms. Curelop was a leader in the establishment of the Nashua Family Planning Group in 1973 and served on the DHHS Medical Care Advisory Committee, Real Choices Consumer Advisory Council, and the New Hampshire Coalition for the Direct Care Workforce. She was a member of the American Society on Aging, the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers licensure task force, and has been nationally certified in case management since 1998.
Most recently, Ellen created the Village Network, a non-profit organization that helps residents 62 and older remain in their homes safely and independently through access to a network of trusted, high quality, non-medical service providers.
Currently, her community activity is centered on a scholarship program at the UNH Law School and the Warren B. Rudman Law Center for students who have an interest in public service. This family effort is in memory of Alison Curelop, a daughter and a sister.
Ellen’s husband Sidney Curelop MD established the first non-profit dialysis unit in New Hampshire and practiced Nephrology and Internal Medicine in Nashua for 49 years. Her daughter Jessica is a nurse practitioner working in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her son, Jebb, is the CEO for Life Coping, Inc.
