Engaging, dynamic, social butterfly.

Those are the words that have always been used to describe me since before I started elementary school. I love all things communication, working with people, talking to strangers. The best story I can remember is my parents consistently telling me to not talk to strangers. So you know what 5 year old me did?

“Are you a stranger? My mommy said I can’t talk to strangers, so I want to make sure that you are not a stranger.” from that moment on… I never shut up.

I’m Nikki. A corporate strategist, career & public speaking coach, planner of all things, writer, Netflix Binge Queen, wife, mom, and creator of Corporate Melanin Millennial.

CMM was created to help other millennials find their passions. You spend almost 2,000 hours a year at work. You should be happy there. My goal through consultative career coaching, resume overhauls, LinkedIn, & 1:’s is to help you blend your passion & your career.
