Badass Women at Any Age

Aug 31, 2021

Experiencing life serving as a member of the Armed Forces, working with non-profits, becoming a master seamstress, studding phlebotomy, earning multiple degrees, running marathons, and teaching in the public school system, Nikki ultimately found the fulfillment of her purpose in the creation of her own non-profit organization, Buy From A Black Woman.  With the mission of serving, supporting and providing tools and resources to help Black Women Business Owners succeed, Buy From a Black Woman was born out of Nikki’s passion for service and her recognition of the lack of support and resources available to black women business owners.  Since 2016 Buy From a Black Woman has empowered, educated and inspired black women business owners and the people who support them. Buy from a Black Woman is a 501(c)(3) organization focused on ensuring that Black Women have the tools and resources that will allow them to be successful. Through educational programs, an online directory, and funding, Buy from a Black Woman continues to grow as a trusted resource that helps Black Women in business.
