Niki began her love affair with travel at the age of 15, when she journeyed cross-country on a mission trip from her home state of Kentucky to Nogales, Mexico to build houses with Habitat for Humanity. This experience ignited a life-long desire to meaningfully engage with other cultures and seek out “the road less traveled.” She holds a BA in Geography from the University of Colorado and has called Boulder, CO home for the last 20 years. She has lived in Amsterdam as an exchange student, Costa Rica as a travel specialist, and most recently, Botswana, as a volunteer with the United States Peace Corps.
Niki is an avid technophile and map enthusiast, who volunteers her technology skills whenever possible. When she’s not dreaming up her next big adventure, Niki can be found playing guitar, writing songs and spending time in her garden. She is especially excited to work with such a well-traveled group of individuals and expand her own travel repertoire to the amazing destinations which ATJ serves.
