Nikki grew up on Long Island and left the first chance she got- fleeing to Boston for her undergraduate career at Northeastern University. To balance her academic pursuits with physically and mentally creative endeavors she turned to improv comedy. She started attending and eventually became an Assistant Organizer of the meetup group the Cambridge Improv Incubator. The incubator is open to all regardless of improv experience. The group truly believes that anyone can do improv and benefit from being spontaneous. She also started taking improv classes at ImprovBoston. Nikki graduated from the five level program at ImprovBoston in November 2010. In March of 2009 Nikki became a member of Active Ingredients after a rigorous audition process. She hopes to continue teaching, learning and performing improv for many years to come.
