Nikki was born and raised in the snowy tundras of Buffalo, NY. She started her singing career at a young age in her back/front yard where her family’s rescue dog, Benji, and later, the entire neighborhood, would be entertained. Nikki started dancing when she was 4 years old and immediately fell in love with tap, jazz, and tutus! In no time, Grandma Joan had her singing and dancing at every family party and in Church! In school, she performed in plays, musicals, select choirs/show choirs (including NYSSMA), playing flute/oboe in orchestra and band. Nikki's extracurricular activities included dancing, acting classes at Studio Arena, and voice lessons. She even produced and performed cabarets on her front lawn with friends, selling tickets to neighbors and donating the money to charitable organizations.
She has a BFA in Musical Theatre from the University at Buffalo, is a member of Actors Equity and SAG-AFTRA and has been seen in Theatre/TV/Film/Commercials nationally and in the NYC area. Nikki also works as an educator/actor for the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) at the NYC Zoos and Coney Island Aquarium performing for and teaching Kids and Adults alike. A composting animal enthusiast, she plays softball, dodgeball, kayaks and loves incredible adventures!
