Path to WEV

Originally from the UK, Nicki qualified as a Chartered Accountant with PriceWaterhouseCoopers, specializing in forensic accounting. She spent over 20 years working in the corporate world in the fields of finance and operational management and pursued postgraduate studies in Somatic Psychology. Nicki finally found her professional calling when she joined WEV as the Business Recovery specialist, working with disaster-impacted business owners in the aftermath of the Thomas Fire and Montecito Debris Flow.

“When we are engaged in work that is purposeful and meaningful, our lives are transformed; WEV is that touchstone for transformation in our community.”
