Growing up on the sands of southern California and spending summers as a beach lifeguard, Nikki loves to expand her storytelling to extreme sports and the outdoors. She has skied with the world class Sun Valley Ski Patrol, competed in an Olympic distance triathlon, and even raced NASCAR.

Quick hits:
If you weren’t working in sports? Dolphin trainer at Sea World.
