Meet Nikki

"What's the point of having a voice

if you're not going to use it?"

What's my story? I'm a proud milspouse with 20 years editorial, marketing + event experience specializing in helping all the elements of your brand story connect. I developed 15+ lifestyle magazines, have helped clients get featured in major press like Telemundo, Forbes, Washington Post and in general, empower my clients to use content to further their missions.

On the flip side of that – I have seen many curveballs and hardships in my life. And I choose to use them as fuel for my fire + view them as defining moments in my narrative. Want to do the same? Then let's chat.


P.S. Because I believe you can learn a lot about me from these, here are my results:

Clifton Strengths Top 5: Activator, Maximizer, Strategic, Learner, Input
DISC: Type I (Influential)
Enneagram: Type 9 (Negotiator)
Myers-Briggs: ENFJ
