Aside from trying to keep up with her 2 kids, dog and husband, Nikki is the Director of Marketing at Beech Acres Parenting Center. She found her passion for marketing at Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts and launched her brand management career at Gorton’s Seafood in Gloucester. Upon receiving her MBA from Duke University, she went on to Playtex Products and eventually Kao Brands. Over a ten year tenure at Kao, she worked on all of their hair and skincare brands, while volunteering with the ESCC (now OneSource). It had been a long-term goal to take what she learned from for-profit and make a difference in the nonprofit sector.
