Founder & ceo
Nikki comes from a 22 year background in Advertising and Marketing. It was her passion and vision to create something exclusive and inclusive for the people and small to medium sized businesses in Haywood County. A native North Carolinean, Nikki moved to Haywood County in 2010 and quickly began putting roots down for her and her family. She currently resides in Waynesville, NC with her daughter and mom, and couldn't imagine living anywhere else in the world.
Molly came to be a part of our team through true Divine Intervention. Being at the right place at THE RIGHT TIME. She has been with our team before we really even knew what we were creating. She is the right hand and sometimes left hand of everything that goes on in the background of Discover Haywood. Molly's passion has been in the design industry for the last 8 years and she exceeds at it. Her love of all things creative has been a lifelong thing, though, eventually leading her to study fine arts in college. She is an amazing assistant, passionate designer, hard worker, honest heart.... all the things you could ever ask for in a teammate.
