Welcome to the Dragon Family: Nicole Kirkland
MSUM welcomes Nicole (Nikky) Kirkland as an administrative office specialist to the department of Speech Language Hearing Sciences. In her new position and in her daily life, Nikky strives to help individuals reach their goals.
Q: What drew you to MSUM?
A: I graduated from Concordia in 2016, so I have always felt connected to the Fargo-Moorhead area. When I saw the job posting at MSUM, I thought of its energetic atmosphere and how the mission statement aligned well with my own values; the position just seemed to be the perfect fit.
Q: How do you prefer to start your workday?
A: I am a morning person so when my alarm goes off, I usually feel motivated to start my day!
Q: What energizes you at work?
A: I feed off the energy around me, so I enjoy being around positive individuals, and of course, coffee!
Q: What book are you currently reading?
A: The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
Q: What is the best advice you ever received?
A: I am not sure where I originally heard this advice but ‘aim to be the reason why someone has a good day, not a bad one’.
Q: What is your favorite place to eat in Fargo-Moorhead?
A: I love sushi, so Poke Bowl!
