Nikki is a US immigration attorney living and working in Australia. Born and raised in Canada to Aussie parents, Nikki was of course a swimmer (and not an ice hockey player!) and competed in two Olympics (Barcelona & Atlanta) and two Commonwealth Games (Victoria & KL) where she won bronze.
She has stayed very involved in sport since retiring, covering two more Olympics (Athens & Beijing) as a journalist, as an Editorial Board Member for LawInSport, and as an Athlete Ambassador for a number of non-profits that use sport and play to help disadvantaged children rebuild their lives including Right To Play.
After 15 years living her own American Dream in New York City, Nikki has spent almost 4 years in Australia with a particular focus and passion helping Aussie startups and entrepreneurs realize their dreams in the US. From the E-3 visa for Aussies to the E-2 for investors, the O-1 for people of extraordinary ability as well as the brand new Entrepreneur option, Nikki helps a wide variety of startups and SMEs get the right people to the US to find success.
At PwC she also works closely with the Technology & Innovation team which helps Aussie based companies with R&D credits and securing government grants and the tax team to plan for US expansion.
See Nikki on the jury panel at the HYPE – Sports Innovation Accelerator: Global Pitch Event on 9 April at Commonwealth House.
