"Competitor Figure is much more suitable for me since I have a natural physique with lots of soft feminine curves. I love big muscles but I do not have the bulk and striations to do well at the national bodybuilding level of competition. In my heart, natural, healthy feminine muscles is what female bodybuilding and fitness should be about," Nikki says.
She was born on 30 July 1978 and at school she was always a skinny runner, holding her school's cross-country record for seven years, and receiving MVP in track and cross-country for 3 years after being the first person in her school's history to do well at regional level. "I was still a skinny 90lbs runner by my Sophomore year in High School. I hated looking that way and desperately wanted to have some curves. One advantage to being thin was the less you weighed the better runner you were. My brother, Brad, who is a good amateur bodybuilder persuaded me to start weight training. Within one month I had joined my local YMCA and I was hooked from then on out," Nikki recalls.
Countless top photographers like Mike Druskin, Gene Hwang, JM Manion, Gene Carangal, Joe Lobell and Guido Marcovelli have lined up to capture Nikki's unique look. They have seen her take a string of competitive titles. She took the All Natural Central USA Bodybuilding title in 1997 and second place in Natural Lightweight Bodybuilding as late as 2007.
But her modelling career and satisfying the small army of muscle worship fans who eat up everything she does have increasingly taken Nikki's main focuse in recent years. But she has made sure she has plenty to fall back on when she eventually hangs up her modelling shoes. After graduating with a bachelors degree in Dietetics at Ball State University, Nikki went on to take a doctorate pharmacy degree in Hawaii. She's definitely a girl with a full house ... brains, beauty and brawn!
