Nikki grew up in Waunakee, WI and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. She spent the first four years of her career in Milwaukee, WI as a headhunter for a boutique recruitment firm. It was here where she discovered her passion for helping people find their dream career opportunity. Nikki moved to the Fox Valley in 2014 and now resides there with her husband, Dr. Trent Paffenroth, and their Silver Lab, “Captain.”
She brings a unique perspective to Edge Advisors not only as a consultant, but also as an Edge client and practice owner. Her husband, Trent, is a second-generation dentist/practice owner and has been around the business and practice of dentistry for most of his life. Having this proximity to dentistry has given Nikki an intimate understanding of the needs dental professionals and their teams require. She understands the challenges and expectations of a successful practice.
Nikki provides dental specialist placement and recruitment. It is her mission to help practice owners and associates by aligning their practice philosophies and goals.
She has been married to Trent since 2018. They enjoy spending time with their dog, exercising, boating, snowmobiling, and spending time with family and friends.
