Nikki was born and raised in Toronto but drove West to Campbell River with her husband, their two children, and pets in the Summer of 2014. Nikki has had a love for animals from an early age and decided that working with animals was going to be her career. Fittingly, she has been a Veterinary Assistant for the past 25 years.

Her full household of fur babies includes 3 dogs (Hank, Gertie and Stu), 3 cats (Mabel, Liam and Sawyer), and two guinea pigs named Norm and Cliff. Even with her hands full, Nikki is always ready to go on an adventure and explore what the Island has to offer.  She has a passion for healthy living, and loves to put on her running shoes and train for her next race.
