Nikki is one of our amazing Certified Veterinary Technicians. Originally from Arizona, Nikki grew up in Yuma, she attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. Then moved to Tucson, where she earned her technician's license from Pima Community College. After graduating, Nikki made the move to the Pacific Northwest, sight unseen. Even though they'd never visited before, Sai, her Catahoula mix, Simon and Theodore her cats, and her step-pups Bowie and Persephone quickly adapted. Nikki loves acting as an advocate for every animal. She loves meeting an animal while they are young, then helping and watching them grow into healthy, happy adults. When she's not at work, Nikki's the friend that's always ready for the next adventure. Grocery shopping? Camping? She's happy to join. You can also find her hiking, at a new restaurant, at a music festival, or relaxing with her pets.
