My name is Nikki and I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Lowell in May 2014. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Journalism and Professional Writing with a minor in Psychology. I have worked in multiple positions where I obtained skills in areas including writing, editing, sports journalism, marketing, and education.
I recently graduated with a Master of Education degree in Higher Education Administration from Boston University, while I was still upholding my full-time position that the University in the Kilachand Honors College. I was promoted in July of 2019 to the Assistant Director for Marketing, Media, and Communications.
I am the CEO of Moonlight & Mindfulness, a small business that specializes in metaphysical items and holistic healing services. I designed and maintain our entire website and I operate all of our social media outlets. I managed to gain 10,000 Instagram followers in just over a year and am in charge of creating all of the content for that platform as well as TikTok and Facebook.
Prior to creating this business, I worked at Boston University in the Kilachand Honors College as the Assistant Director for Marketing, Media, and Communications. In this role, my main responsibilities included developing all marketing materials such as posters, brochures, rack cards, calendars, programs, and booklets for upcoming events, conferences, and open houses.
I also invest a great deal of time on various side projects in both television and writing. This includes hosting television segments for NESN's Dirty Water TV, where I discuss the latest in sports news among other topics. I am also a Contributing Writer for the popular news website, Thought Catalog. I write for another popular website called Tamed Wild with a focus on writing articles about various herbs and their uses and healing properties.
