Originally from Portsmouth, Rhode Island, Nikki graduated in 2002 from Montana State University with a BS in Biological Sciences. Upon graduation she moved back to RI and worked as an Animal Care Technician for a few years at a local animal shelter, Potter League For Animals. From there she became a Veterinary Ophthalmology Technician at a Veterinary Ophthalmology practice in Warwick RI, where she worked for over 13 years. In the Spring of 2018 she and her family decided to make the move to Bozeman and start life anew! Nikki spent the last year and a half as a stay at home mom and decided to jump back into the veterinary field.
When not working at Foothills Veterinary Hospital Nikki enjoys spending time with her family, her husband, 2 children and their fur babies Molly the Labradoodle and Mackerel and Tanooki the kitties. Nikki also has a strong passion for running and also spends her time skiing in the winter and hiking in the warmer months.
