Nikki discovered Sawtooth while teaching Winston’s local architectural histories to students in her World Architecture class. Housed in the original Shamrock Mill, Sawtooth’s iconic roof has been the subject of many of Nikki’s student papers.
Anytime she can get outside, Nikki can be found hiking with her dog, Ginsey. She enjoys spending time with her niece and nephew as well as friends and family, listening to audiobooks, thinking about architecture, meeting new people, and learning new things.
