Hi and Welcome,
Who Is Nicki?
I’m Nicki Sanders – a natural born “helper” and teacher.
I’m a Mother, a Macro Social Work Professional, an experienced Human Services Administrator, a college Professor, and of course an Entrepreneur. Those are just my titles.
Just in case you want to know a little more about me, I’m a native Washingtonian, an introvert with extrovert tendencies, a first-generation college student, a lover of cupcakes and pancakes, a roller coaster rider, a non-fiction book reader, and a huge fan of New Edition and old school 80’s hip hop. My ultimate life goal is to trade in suburban life for country living. Yes, I love farms and barns too.
I have a huge supportive family. I grew up in a close-knit community with neighbors and teachers who provided me a strong sense of safety and security. After giving birth to my daughter in my sophomore year in college, transferring institutions at the end of my junior year, putting in untold hours of volunteer time (which is a another passion of mine), working various low-wage jobs, acquiring too many student loans, and mastering sleep deprivation, I finally earned my Bachelor’s degree from Trinity College (now Trinity Washington University where I serve as an Adjunct Professor) and Master of Social Work with a concentration in Management and Community Organization and a specialization in Social Action and Community Development degree from University of Maryland, Baltimore, School of Social Work.
I have worked for the federal government, in school-based and community-based programs, and with families (including teen parents), teens, and with human service professionals. I began The Teen Toolbox on a very part-time basis in 2007 while attending graduate school. The Teen Toolbox provided life skills training with special supports for teens in the foster care system. I ran my business like a hobby for many years but in 2014, I changed my business name to Packaged For Success to incorporate all of my passions, skills, and experiences. Packaged For Success is now Nicki Sanders Leadership Consulting. IT IS ME!
Nicki Sanders Leadership Consulting is a representation of who I am authentically and my avenue for making a deeper impact in the world. Nicki Sanders Leadership Consulting helps businesses recruit, hire, train and retain the best employees and coaches women in mid-level management to their next career level.
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to browse around the website a bit longer. There’s lots to see and read.
