Nikki is a Project Manager at Stanford Healthcare and Clinics. She has spent 3 years as a Medical Equipment Planner, 8 years as a Project Manager with 15 years total at Stanford.
When asked how she got into the construction industry she replied “After leaving operations, I became a project manager in process improvement, preparing the ambulatory areas for the transition to an EMR. Following that project, I project managed space planning and activations for ambulatory services. It was at this point that I began to regularly interact with the Planning, Design and Construction department and was really introduced to the construction world. I transitioned to the department when an opportunity for growth presented.”
Her favorite thing about construction is she loves watching a project manifest from planning to activation. She enjoys working with a variety of people, collectively, to accomplish something that is bigger than any one of us individually.
Nikki’s extracurricular activities include being a Girl Scout leader, photography, reading, travelling (when not in a pandemic.)
She has found inspiration from Malala Yousafzai – despite the danger and what, at times, must feel like insurmountable odds, she stands up for what she believes and works for a better future for girls worldwide.
A random thought she’d like to share:
“Whatever you do, do it with love.”
