DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT
Nikki was introduced to Bernie’s Book Bank initially through her children’s schools via several book drives and subsequently through a work function held at Bernie’s Book Bank. An avid reader and mother, Nikki understands the critical importance of developing reading skills at an early age.
Nikki’s experience spans more than 25 years and includes development positions held at Lambs Farm, Gateway for Cancer Research, Highland Park Hospital, Swedish Covenant Hospital and Advocate Charitable Foundation. To have the opportunity to build a development program at Bernie’s Book Bank was an experience that she could not pass up and looks forward to being part of the organization’s growth.
Nikki’s most memorable book as a child was Charlotte’s Web. Her favorite books to read to her children were Love You Forever and M.A.D.L.Y. In her free time, Nikki enjoys spending time with her family, enjoying her husband’s delicious food, watching her children do their best in whatever they attempt and, of course, reading whenever she can!
