Nikkey got into the world of arm wrestling at the end of 2012. Growing up as the child of alcoholic parents, the sport and its community gave her the discipline and support she needed not to fall into negative patterns. After being on a year-long leave from arm wrestling following pregnancy and the birth of her second child, she trains regularly, determined to make her way back into the sport and foster a healthy lifestyle for herself and her two children.
