She comes to us from Hazleton, where she worked at News 13/SSPTV as a reporter and anchor for more than three years. Before that, Nikki interned at WFMZ in Reading.

Nikki graduated from Shippensburg University with a degree in Communications/Journalism and a minor in Speech Communication. She was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and is one of several Berks County natives on the WNEP team.

Nikki is a diehard Philadelphia sports fan and doesn't miss a Phillies or Eagles game. She also enjoys playing tennis and spending time with her family, friends and dogs Monty and Polly.
