If you’ve spoken to Nikki you will know from the accent that she is not originally from Aberdeen. She may be an Ayrshire lass at heart, but she really loves Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. Why else would she want to tell everyone to come “visit”?! Nikki set up home in Aberdeen five years ago and fell in love with the Granite City straight away.
At the young age of 16 Nikki decided that she fancied a career in radio. So a couple of years later she applied to study Media at Paisley University, where she specialised in Radio Production. Upon graduating Nikki started working for a community radio station, and then enjoyed managing four more community radio stations over the next seven years.
It was about then that she realised it was time for a change and so Nikki started to explore other career options, and was thrilled when she was offered the job at VisitAberdeenshire. The role was going to be a challenge for her, but one that she was ready to take on head first.
Nikki lives in the City Centre of Aberdeen with her husband (who is also from Kilmarnock, but strangely they only met in Aberdeen...). In her spare time, she enjoys running along the beautiful beach promenade, catching up with friends over a cup of tea and a cupcake (ok, sometimes it’s a cocktail) and shopping at the various pop-up vintage and craft markets that we’re spoiled with.
