After graduating from Seattle Pacific University, she earned her Master’s of Education and Juris Doctorate concurrently from the University of Washington. She has spent the years since serving Seattleites as a teacher and pro-bono lawyer.

She truly embodies what it means to be a public servant.

Movements for a more just Seattle have been created and supported by concerned citizens and community organizers like Nikkita who build coalitions and partnerships and make these issues something that unites the people of Seattle.
