ABOUT NIKKI THE MANIFESTO
I'm Nikki Jones. I've been working in marketing and design for 7 years and started my business Jones for Design LLC in 2012. I live in the heart of the Midwest, in an Illinois-Iowa metro area that straddles the Mississippi.
What do I know, anyway?
I spent the first 4 years of my college career at beautiful Southern Illinois University - Carbondale, and I will always be a Saluki at heart! But at the last minute, I quit the pre-law school track, and transferred to Columbia College Chicago to nurture my right brain for a change. A few years later (fueled by some classic multi-passionate woman overwhelm), I took up Grad School. It was exactly what I needed, and I went on to compete in a shark-tank-style business plan competition where I earned 3rd place and won a $10,000 scholarship. Truth be told, I'm a sucker for academics, so don't be surprised if I find a few more degrees I can pursue.
