Growing up, Nicki pursued her myriad interests – from horseback riding to the bass guitar, from photography to boys’ ice hockey – with an equally short attention span. As soon as one sports season ended, another quickly took its place, and if Physics was too hard, there was always Musical Theater. But her curiosity and exuberant nature never failed to keep her engaged as she explored different areas of study, including philosophy, psychology, religion, ethics, art, media, and more. Eventually she achieved the awareness that how she lived her life was more important that what she knew or managed to accomplish. Ultimately, Nicki found her true passion lay in understanding and upholding the human experience - in every medium. Acting is one such venue - a means to explore the nature of our common struggles, while hopefully inspiring critical thought and compassion in the process. As well, Nicki is highly involved in humanitarian endeavors and community initiatives. Instead of feeling there is “no place like home,” she now feels like there is “no place like now.”
