Nikki’s role at Vivid IP is as multifaceted as she is. We call her our Office Manager, but she’s also our Accounting Clerk, Content Marketer, CRM Administrator, Executive Assistant, Head of Client Intake & Support, and all-around Champion Task-Slayer.
Lucky for her, and especially for us, she’s a master at juggling different hats. (In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if she could actually juggle hats…) After a few years in retail—including at a certain storage solutions store where her knack for organization became an official superpower—Nikki saw an opportunity to chase an entirely different kind of career. So she did, parlaying her BA in Communications (major: TV & Film Studies) into several years of escalating seniority in talent and recruiting positions for agencies and startups.
In September 2019, she did it again, adding a long list of vital business-building skills to the Vivid team, including: Process creation and optimization, team leading, organization, documentation, communication, employer branding, content marketing, technical and creative writing, public speaking (she’s an award-winner, in fact) and, of course, standout people skills.
What drew you to Vivid IP?
“I love being with a team full of people who are just as passionate as I am about getting things done—it’s so obvious that there’s a tangible amount of hustle at this firm!”
What big work goal are you currently tackling?
“Establishing a structured, comprehensive onboarding and training experience for new hires. Wrapped up in this goal is a ton of smaller goals: Sharpening my knowledge of intellectual property standards and trends, mastering our CRM system, using our brand guide to build internal tools for our team, and writing clear documentation for our daily operations workflows.”
What are some of your personal passions?
“Writing—in all forms. I blog (on Medium) about movies and music, productivity, design, and living in Atlanta. I also write and edit resumes for a little side-hustle (my HR experience really comes in handy here). I’m a huge fan of live music as well and have been known to regularly camp out for several hours to see my favorite bands from the barrier. (Personal Record: 10 hours to see Muse at Lollapalooza.)”
What’s your spirit animal?
“An owl. Sometimes cute and cuddly, sometimes intimidating, but above all else, always wise.”
