Nikki joined Fox 17 after completing her Master's in journalism at Northwestern University and serving as a video Washington correspondent at Medill on the Hill.
She has held internships at The Student Press Law Center in D.C. and KMOV's News 4 Investigates unit in St. Louis. Also, Nikki attained her National Security reporting certificate from Northwestern, where she specialized in homeland security and went through hostile environment training.
She also worked on the Medill Justice Project where she investigated potentially wrongful murder convictions for prisoners serving life sentences. Nikki views herself as the eyes and ears for the community and is most passionate about holding government and elected officials accountable.
When Nikki's not working, she loves cheering on her St. Louis Cardinals and Mizzou Tigers, where she attended undergrad. She also enjoys hanging out with her dog and exploring patios around Nashville with him.
Nikki is new to Nashville, having moved from St. Louis to work at Fox 17. She loves making new contacts and local connections, so feel free to email her with story tips or just to say hi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
