Outside of work, Nikki and her husband enjoy getting off-the-grid with their rescue dog Vince – getting as deep into nature as possible when they camp, hike, and rock climb as long and as late as the weather holds out. You can find Nikki cooking complicated meals for friends and family, reading, and doing yoga.
Favorite place in the world
Anza-Borrego, the desert outside of San Diego. I love driving off road, finding a quiet place to camp, and sleeping under a clear sky with a bed of stars above me. It is deathly quiet, except for the coyotes howling in the distance.

Dogs. My husband, Arlo. And Trader Joe’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups.
