Nickie is a native of Highland County, Ohio where she and her twin sister, Tessa, grew up on the family farm. Nickie is Donor Conceived, and like a fair number of our DNAngels volunteers, she started as a client and then decided to pay it forward by helping others. Nickie’s mother was a strong and determined woman who decided to have her daughters and raise them on her own, and this strength is a trait she passed on to her girls. Nickie has a natural gift for empathy, and it was her caring and generous spirit that inspired the senior staff to put together the DNAngels “Buddy Program” which she heads along with fellow intake specialist, Enjoli Deleon.
Nickie spends time when she isn’t welcoming new clients wrangling toddlers, taking photographs and spending time on her family farm. She was raised Quaker, and her mother was a scholar and an ordained minister. Nickie is also ordained – as a minister of the Universal Life Church and will be marrying her dear friend and her fiancé later this year.
Nickie’s family farm is about an hour outside of Cincinnati, Ohio, which means she is naturally very excited about the Bengals trip to the Super Bowl in 2022! Other important things to know about Nickie are that she loves the color purple, is an avid reader, Star Trek and Harry Potter fan. She considers herself a huge nerd, but says she comes by it honestly, “I get it from my Dad!”
Nickie and Tessa have formed a very close and loving relationship with their Donor Dad Eric and his wife, who are very happy to have both girls in their lives.
