Testimonials

K. Parris

I chose Nicki for her knowledge of the healthcare sector at a time when my company needed to improve its marketing and lead generation. She listened to my needs and together we developed a strategy to target the audience I wanted to reach. With her help I assessed the market, determined if my business idea was viable, confirmed my pricing strategy and developed my marketing material. Through her expertise, I expanded into new markets and connected with her contacts in the health sector. It was a highly valuable experience, resulting in new and exciting opportunities for my expanding business.

A coach and leader takes people where they want to go…..Nicki has done just that. She is an inspiring leader, a great coach, an excellent mentor who has the keen eye to recognize skills. If it wasn’t for her coaching, I would not have done my Project Management certification. Big thanks for all your guidance, mentoring and coaching, I look up to you and consider you my role model.
