Nikki has been tumbling and falling down for fun since she was five years old, so it was only natural to make a career out of it!
Within 6 years of taking her first gymnastics class, Nikki was a USAG level 10 gymnast, consistently placing in the top three at state championships every year on floor exercise. Financial setbacks forced her to retire early, but she was very quickly "adopted" by coach Madonna Holladay and the Sparkman Varsity cheerleaders. Together in 1997, they won the national championship in the UCA small co-ed division.
Nikki graduated from the University of Montevallo, where she studied history and theater. Soon afterwards, she found herself in a number of musical theater productions, flipping around the stage in high heels and falling down for laughs. This, combined with her gymnastics and cheerleading background, proved to be invaluable experience down the road....
A long time fan of the show "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", Nikki had always wanted to work as a stunt double, but she never thought it could happen to her! At the age of 30, she was living in Georgia and about ready to give up on her dream of becoming a performer, when a chance encounter with a stunt coordinator led to a SAG card and a career in stunts. Today, Nikki has worked on over 60 films and television shows, hitting the ground and jumping off buildings for some of Hollywood's leading actresses. She is forever grateful to those who have always believed in her and helped her along the way.
"Follow your heart, and never give up on your dreams!"
