Q> How would you explain your job to a small child? 

Nikki> It's like racing bumper cars, constantly bouncing around looking for the finish line.

Nikki> Dream big! The sky's the limit.   

Q> What is something that inspires you? 

Nikki> Music - it's the key to life. 

Q> What’s the most interesting job you’ve had? 

Nikki> I once had a temp position where I stood outside Madison Square Garden handing out hockey flyers in the middle of winter. Yep, that was VERY temporary!  

Q> What was your dream job when you were younger? 

Nikki> I wanted to be a lawyer because my mom always said I had a big mouth. I used to respond and tell her the mouth is made to talk, lol.

Q> What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?
