More points on why Nikki can help:

  • 9 schools in 12 years
  • 6 parents, all with very different rules and ways of raising kids
  • Victim of bullying and racism while in school

Despite all that…

  • MBA in International Business,
  • Speaks 4 languages,
  • Traveled to 14 countries and 33 states.. and counting…
  • Worked for top Fortune 500 tech companies

Growing up in Hayward, California as one of three white kids in a school of 1,600, my experience was diverse. With my multi-parent lifestyle, I learned to adapt to ever-changing environments and rules.  In 2020, I walked away from a lucrative tech job to start Green Chameleon Collective. 

I started Green Chameleon Collective with a singular mission: to shape how the next generation of business leaders can remain unique and true to themselves and turn that uniqueness into an advantage.


Unique starts with YOU!  I can’t wait to help you on your journey, so you can find strength in your uniqueness.

My Mission
I want to empower the next generation of leaders…

To feel confident to be themselves
To bring their unique perspectives to every conversation
And to drive the change that is needed across so many facets of our lives
