Nicki is a digital ethics enthusiast and seasoned technology professional with more than 20 years’ experience in the legal field, specifically technical writing, business systems analysis, and training. After a brief period in the banking industry, she returned to legal where she currently manages IT Communications at Perkins Coie, LLP to “keep IT human,” working closely across teams to execute meaningful messaging campaigns that help deliver IT/business goals and cultivate innovation and growth mindsets. Nicki is also a proud DePaul University alumna (“Double Demon”) with a Master’s Degree in Information Systems and a Bachelor’s in Political Science and Philosophy.
Nicki loves solving problems, crunching numbers, and pushing the limits on what we think we understand about the modern reader. Writing and delivering thoughtful, eye-catching communications that reflect the modern era — and respect the time and attention of the modern reader — remind her to keep communications creative, concise, and read-worthy when new information and change is constant. The Digital Transformation is more about people and a societal change than any one technology or new tool – so let’s keep things human, and make it a little fun, too.
