Nikki has an associates degree in veterinary technology, a Bachelor of Science in nonprofit administration, and two masters degrees from Bellevue University in communications and public administration. Prior to her move to the Sunshine State, Nikki served as the director of placement and behavior for the Nebraska Humane Society. She then moved to Jacksonville in 2012 to serve as the adoptions manager at First Coast No More Homeless Pets, where she oversaw the citys first mega adoption events, which are now standard practice in both Jacksonville and other nokill cities nationwide. Nikki then moved to Jacksonville Animal Care and Protective Services to serve as shelter manager and, later, as division chief. Her leadership helped Jacksonville become the largest nokill city in the nation. Nikki is now the chief operating officer at the Jacksonville Humane Society.
