Rikki was born and raised in Point Edward, and attended SCITS Secondary School. Having always wanted to work in the healthcare field, she proceeded to St. Clair College in Windsor to pursue Dental Assisting, as she enjoys the continuous learning opportunities that the dental field provides.
A highlight of her studies at St. Clair involved participation in Operation Smile, a yearly event that promotes oral health in the community and provides free, basic restorative and surgical services for those people who might not otherwise have access to those services. Rikki is also an avid supporter of Stigma Survivors, a Sarnia-Lambton organization dedicated to raising funds for patients in the Mental Health and Addictions program at Bluewater Health.
In her spare time, Rikki enjoys the outdoors, especially reading at any of the beautiful beaches in Lambton County.
