Director: Nikki E.
Nikki is the Director here at our Maple Grove center. With a degree in Human Development from California State University, Long Beach, Nikki found herself gravitating towards child care and ECE right away. After spending many years working her way from Aide to Manager in child care in California, she decided to move to Minnesota with her husband. There they were blessed to grow their family through foster care to adoption. Their two girls have added so much to their lives and they thank God every day for the love he's added into the house. In her spare time, you will find her either reading or mapping out her next travel adventure. She has visited 27 countries, so far, and is looking forward to getting that 30th stamp on her passport! Her favorite Bible verse is Matthew 11:28 - "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest".
