Rikki is a bright, talented and results driven personality. As NBC 5's first Online Anchor/Reporter in a new emerging media, Rikki paved the way with insightful, exciting and informative news and information for NBC viewers. She is a dedicated professional and a joy to have as a colleague and friend.
Rikki always delivers outstanding results along with her "can do" attitude, team spirit, dedication and compassion for others. A truly gifted and talented professional!
I worked closely with Rikki to increase the volume of patients to the sleep program. With Rikki's help, the program successfully increased volumes by 23% over a 1 year period.
In addition to her ability to build a successful marketing plan, Rikki has an interpersonal style that is honest and straight forward, yet pleasantly collegial.

Freelance Writer and Editor
Rikki is an intelligent, capable, dedicated, and personable woman who is easy to work with. She is always quick on her feet, with sensible reactions in all the circumstances I've seen her in. I feel confident in saying that she is capable of handling any situation with tact and professionalism.
In her role as a PR Director Rikki is organized, efficient and extremely competent. I have worked with Rikki for the past 2 years and we’ve collaborated many times. She assists with updates to the NorthShore web site by generating ideas for article topics, providing guidance on which doctors to contact to get the article written, as well as facilitating the communication between the doctor and the writer.
Her communication skills are excellent and in my opinion it’s due to her extremely vivacious personality. She is very charming, has a great sense of humor and is a delight to interact with both on a professional and personal level.
