Lead Veterinary Technician
Nikki grew up with all sorts of critters, from cats and dogs to turtles and birds. She’s had a passion for pet care ever since her earliest memories! Nikki also loved science and medicine from an early age. She decided to combine the best of both worlds and become a veterinary professional—now, she’s proud to serve as Orion Animal Care Center’s Lead Veterinary Technician!
Nikki is from Rochester Hills and began her animal-care journey by working as a receptionist and assistant at a small-town pet hospital. Next, she took a job at another nearby clinic, where she first met Dr. Guild. Always dedicated to continuing education and the ever-changing field of veterinary medicine, Nikki advanced her skillset and knowledge by taking veterinary technology courses to learn even more. Now, she’s thrilled to continue her journey as the head of Orion Animal Care Center’s Veterinary Technician team.
Medically, Nikki is fond of surgical work, and she also has a special passion for the area’s pocket pets. Her favorite part of every shift, though, is getting to meet new pet owners and their adorable animal companions. Knowing that she’s making a real difference is the ultimate reward for Nikki!
Most of Nikki’s free time away from work is spent with her teenaged daughter. She also loves to catch up on her favorite television shows or movies. Nikki has two pets: Bella, a Dachshund who will not sleep unless she’s burrowed under blankets, and a loveable cat who goes by Jackson.
