nikkiNikki Skrivanos works in the front office and fills in as veterinary assistant. She has worked in the customer service industry most of her life.  It wasn’t until she started working as a receptionist at an animal hospital that she realized she could use all her talents to help not only people but animals also.  She enjoys getting to know the patients and their humans.  Her attention to detail and her organizational skills help to make everything run smoothly and ensure clients are taken care of properly.  Nikki’s abilities lead her to move to St. Croix Virgin Islands to help her father open a Greek restaurant.  While there, she was able to continue helping animals by rescuing and finding new homes for some of the many strays.  Once she returned to Arkansas, she not only picked up where she left off, but started to take her veterinary assistant skills to the next level. She has a dog named Leon that loves to go everywhere with her especially to work.  She enjoys outdoor activities and traveling back to St Croix whenever possible.
