Niki grew up in Toronto and graduated from Ryerson University’s Radio and Television Arts program.
She began her news career as an intern at Global News. She then worked as a News Librarian and Editorial Assistant where she assisted in producing daily stories, before settling into her current role as a reporter/videographer at CHEX TV.
During her career, Niki has also worked on shows such as CTV’s So You Think You Can Dance Canada, CBC’s Steven and Chris, and the Food Network’s Food Truck Face Off.
Some of Niki’s highlights at CHEX include reporting the inspiring story of a reformed drug addict of 17 years and a tense police standoff outside a Peterborough home which lasted more than a day.
When Niki isn’t reading or looking for stories that make a difference in people’s lives, she loves to sing, dance and stay active with family and friends.
