Nicki joined Quarryside at the end of 2021, after working as a vet assistant for a year. Oddly enough, she has a bachelor’s degree in Conservation Biology from State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF). She is going back for her Masters of Science in Ecology to do research on mangrove snails in the Pacific. Aside from her academic interests she loves hiking with her dog Jody, crafting, and exploring new places.
