We connected with Nikki through the Pride 5k, after years of admiring their work from afar. Nikki is a highly accomplished athlete, with multiple All Americans, international medals, and a World Championship finals appearance to their name. But it's what Nikki brings to the world off the track and race course that makes them so special. Read on to get to know the newest member of the Picky Team!
Who would play you in your biopic?
Eddie Redmayne (it’s the freckles)

Putting on a successful in-person Pride 5k in Flagstaff with my partner Emma Gee!
Best book you’ve read recently?
“I’m Glad my Mom Died” by Jennette McCurdy
Why Picky Bars?
I am quite picky (no pun intended) with the brands I decide to work with. They must share my values when it comes to community and inclusivity, be genuine and fun to work with, and must make great products, all boxes Picky Bars checks!
