Her faith, and desire to help others led her to grow a high-performing sales team of 15 women in 4 states. As her business continues to grow, so do the relationships with her clients and sales team. Her vision of empowering women to be true to their dreams while creating a positive financial future is coming true. Nicki, like her grandmother, loves serving others and enjoys volunteering at Polished and the Junior League of Dallas.
