Preschool Chef

Teacher Nikki is our awesome Preschool Chef, making all the delicious lunches and snacks for the kids at The Good Life! 

Nikki grew up in the beautiful Columbia Gorge in Carson, Washington until she was 19 and then moved to Hood River. She moved to Newberg two summers ago and fell in love with the Good Life philosophy, teachers and energy for her daughter, Saylynn to attend. Nikki has an amazing energy, loves working with kids and makes some of the most delicious food that is kid friendly, all while sneaking in some super healthy ingredients! Nikki joined The Good Life team in 2019 and brings not only the passion of cooking and experience in the service industry, but the love of sharing nutrition with kids. 

Nikki's hobbies outside of work include cooking & baking, hiking, gardening, exploring, swimming, renovating, going for walks, skiing, playing Zelda and she also loves to visit the Oregon coast frequently with her favorite place in Pacific City! Nikki also helps out in the classrooms whenever possible and loves helping kids discover their individual potential. 






Nikki knows how to embrace each moment, laughing with, loving and nuturing all the kids at The Good Life!
