Nikki grew up in Brockton and always carried pride of the city she came from. Nikki was an amazing photographer, who could see the beauty in almost anything. One of Nikki's greatest joys in this world was being "Sonini" to both her nieces Olivia and Sophia.

Above all else, Nikki was the most passionate, loyal, and caring person anyone ever had the honor of meeting, which is what made her so memorable to anyone she met.
