I have lived in the DFW Metroplex my whole life, and it is definitely a good place to be for advertising because it is the fifth largest media outlet in the nation! (Yep, advt was my college major.) I always think with creative things in mind, and if a desired result seems out of reach, I always do my best to accomplish it.

Music is very important to me, so I was in the Nolan Viking Band throughout high school. The reason why I chose not to join band in college was to spare my grades! As a child I grew up to the Beatles, then my teens involved Nirvana, Alice In Chains and other grunge/metal bands. After Napster's explosion my taste in music expanded to a vast horizon, but Metallica had to ruin that. I like pretty much any type of music except for country, polka and (c)rap.

People say I am dependable. I guess that is apparent after being elected to several leadership positions since high school, and I worked for UTA's Housing Office from my first summer in college until graduation. My personality type is INFJ (Introverted, iNtuition, Feeling and Judging), and I can say I am happy to be of such rarity. (INFJs are only 2-3% of the U.S. population.)

You may be asking, "Where did 'Nikki' come from?" To answer those who are curious, that is the latest call sign I received from a nurse at Baylor hospital. (My previous call signs were "Christie" and "Skippy," which I got after landing an F-16-in the sim-at NAS Ft. Worth JRB.) I was named "Christie" because I did not want to deal with updating my phone's display name, which showed the former student hire's name. So, after my former supervisor took notice of it, he thought it would match my hair length as I grew it out for donation.

And when I returned to HQ10AF a few years ago, I had many great experiences, and I enjoyed my job. It might be odd to hear someone who works for the government say that, but I really do like the things I get to do, and the 10 AF and 301 FW personnel are a great group of people to work with. If you take a look at my e-folio, you will see some of the things I have been able to create.

No, I do not have a myspace page (nor facebook, etc). Social networking sites might be great for some people; however, that is not my cup of tea.

I am an eagle! What is your inner animal?
“You're an Eagle!! You're a wise person who thinks almost all of their plans through quickly, and make the best result for you and those around you. People enjoy your company but are sometimes suprised by how intense you can become when you are challenged.”
