“I like problem solving and serving as a resource for people,” says Nikki.
As Director of The MadAveCollective, she gets lots of opportunities to do both.
The Collective fills a unique niche. It engages up-and-coming creative talent to produce marketing materials for under-staffed non-profits. The creatives get paid work, experience and mentoring; the organizations get their message out. It’s a win-win.
“I love bringing people together for a purpose,” Nikki says, “then directing traffic and making sure all the details are taken care of.”
“I talk with a lot of Executive Directors and Marketing Directors and they all seem to have two things in common: not enough people and not enough time,” says Nikki. “My goal is to make life easier for people in those positions; take tasks off their plates so they can focus on higher priorities.”
Nikki is also a part-time Certified Personal Trainer through The National Academy of Sports Medicine. In fact, she trains many members of the MadAveGroup staff.
A graduate of the University of Toledo, Nikki earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communication degree. She’s a mom who likes to hike, camp and play softball.
“Nikki, we are enjoying our experience working with you very much. Thanks for your patience as we work at our snail’s pace!”
“I was sad to not see some faces at today’s luncheon. You missed a phenomenal presenter - Nikki Brown. No worries, though. She has committed to present again, sometime next year. You don’t want to miss this!"
