    Office administrator

    Niki is the woman who holds down the front office while supporting the TBC community. Before coming to TBC, Niki helped churches secure loans. Prior to that, she was in the project management field in insurance, IT, construction, and wireless. She bleeds orange and maroon (i.e. she's a Virginia Tech grad) who can't stand to finish a book without having the next one handy. She uses her PMP on both foreign and domestic mission projects, one of her great passions, but also in her home, where she keeps her family on track and moving forward. Southside Church of the Nazarene is where she sings her heart out in the choir, leads a women's Bible study, and has been called to lead a local mission team.
