Who We Are
A word from our founder:
“I started Wild Women Prevail because I believe being wild means being true to yourself. It means our pasts should never define us. WWP offers girls from all parts of life a chance to find themselves and be who they want to be without being tied to society’s labels or their past experiences.”
Nicky - Founder
Nicky’s unique set of skills and professional experience are the keys to her success. Her experience as an active enrichment based educator, working with various ages of children (4-18), allows her to see the true potential in each child. Blend that with her life-long commitment and experience in positive animal training and you have a very capable, uniquely talented individual.
When Nicky is not working with her Wild Women Prevail students she teaches positive youth development classes for children throughout Ventura County. Nicky is also a successful Information Technology Project Manager and provides classes teaching basic computer skills, is a nature enthusiast and loving active community member within Ventura County.
Above all else Nicky believes in empowering our youth, it is her calling, her gift. Through her own experiences, Nicky has developed an unparalleled, actionable and effective program that aims to achieve empowering our girls through animals and nature.
When I first heard about Wild Women Prevail I was excited and drawn to them because they help at risk young women in our communities. I have always been determined to help the community through the difficult times, and be able to offer therapy to all who want/need it. Throughout my work I have also realized that I enjoyed working with adolescents because they are smart, sarcastic, and have a lot to give. After working with Wild Women Prevail, I am even more excited for what’s to come and for the future of our youth.
