Admissions Coordinator


I've been with Compassus since 1999 in roles including, Case Manager, Call Team Nurse and Director of Clinical Services. I'm originally from Louisville, Nebraska. My family and I moved to Missouri in 1980 to be near relatives. I married Art Simmoneau five years ago and we have six sons, nine grandchildren, and six dogs. In our spare time, you'll find us on the motorcycle discovering new foods to sample and scenery to take in.

Kole Carter

Bereavement Coordinator


I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a BS in Psychology from NW Missouri State University and a MS in Counseling from SW Missouri State University. I've lived in the Springfield area for 35 years.


I started my hospice career with Hospice of SW Missouri, now known as Compassus, in 1989. I love my current role as Bereavement Coordinator. I am currently a Compassus volunteer and held a position as Counselor for many years. Prior to joining Compassus, I was in private practice and the Director of Admissions at a small hospital.


My wife, Jamie, has been an elementary school teacher for more than 25 years, helping children form a good foundation for future success. We're proud parents of two adult children, Karson, 22, and Kalli, 20. In my spare time I'm a world class powerlifter and advocate for investing in yourself for mental and physical health and longevity. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to meet, serve, and work with the people I do on a daily basis.
