Nikki is a proud product of Minnesota’s premier college town, Northfield. She began her career working as an intern with the late Don Starr at Starr Design in 1998. Eight years of institutional, retail, and residential experience behind her — she now journeys north daily to work with us as a key retail/hospitality player in our expanding national marketplace.
Reprise takes credit for finding talent having excellent relational skills and an understanding of retailing and hospitality. Nikki, not being the exception, has trained restaurant and country club staff and managed facilities. Our bet is that this experience quietly instills a subtle knowledge of “operations” that is expected of us but difficult to develop outside of the having experienced the “real thing”. A perfect match for McDonald’s USA, Nikki designs, details, and documents new stores and retrofits across a 35 state region.
In addition to McDonald’s, Nikki’s past architectural experience includes Hearth & Home Technologies, Video Update, and Waterford Oil. She has experience working with hospital/clinic and college facilities and has an enviable list of activities and affiliations in serving her community. She is a partner in her family’s business growing fall vegetables.
