Nikki Primus

September 2022

Nikki has been working at the DAC for over 5 and 1/2 years. She is one of our designated coordinators, the marketing manager, and she runs the Life Skills and Social Recreation department. When she’s not working, she spends her time hiking, crafting, playing with her kitties, watching documentaries, and reading (so much reading). When asked why she enjoys working at the DAC, she says: “I love making connections with the individuals. There’s no better feeling than seeing the positive impact you make on their lives by helping them achieve their goals.”

Why her coworkers believe she deserves to be employee of the month:

“She does so much for the DAC. For example, the garden would be nowhere without her. I will continue to vote for her until she gets it because I strongly believe she deserves this each and every month!”
“She works hard and always goes above and beyond.”
“Nikki wears so many hats at the DAC. She’s great with the individuals, an amazing lead, and a lovely person to be around.”
“Miss Nikki has been working her butt off harvesting and preparing the garden for future use (like cutting and freezing so much). Not to mention she has also been cooking up tasty treats and helping individuals learn new skills. Great job, Sweets 😊
