Nikki’s editing career of nearly 27 years stemmed from her love of storytelling. Since then, her talent and playful creativity have landed her commercial work for major clients like McDonald’s, Allstate, Walmart, Disney, and Always’ award-winning “Like a Girl” campaign. 

After starting her career at Daily Planet, Nikki began working at Whitehouse Post, where she spent the majority of her career. Today, she is an editor at Hootenanny, a woman-owned editorial boutique in Chicago. 

Outside of the business, Nikki is an avid runner, competing in ultramarathon events of up to 100 miles! But mostly, she just enjoys hitting the trails wherever and whenever she can, especially in the canyons and mountains out west.
