About Nicky:

Proud of her Native American Echota and Alabamian roots, Nicky has been in New York since 2004 (and still loves it!). She holds a Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology and got her start in NYC alongside Becky Straw at charity: water in the early years of the organization. From providing direct services at the New York County District Attorney’s Office to leading the first NGO to reach 1 million followers on social media to leading NGO’s and tech startups in their partnerships and social impact efforts, Nicky has over a decade of experience in growing nonprofits, building startups and forging social impact relationships that scale with technology. When not in the office or field, Nicky enjoys traveling and taking on new challenges, from climbing Kilimanjaro to learning to scuba dive!





About Create Good


The Create Good podcast is a conversation with change makers and rabble-rousers to find out what makes them tick and how they create good. We created the podcast because we were missing the connections and community that came from conferences and gatherings. Our goal is to share some awesome nonprofit folks with the community. Subscribe to follow along.


Create Good started as a conference, the first one was in 2017, to gather nonprofit communications leaders creating breakthrough work and share them in a fun and inspiring space. Like everyone else, we had to pivot due to the pandemic. We moved the conference online and this year we are pivoting again to a series of webinars and podcast. We are hoping to return to our in-person conference in 2023. Visit the site to see past sessions and sign up for the newsletter to find out when we will meet in person again at the next Create Good Conference.
