Antoinette R. Interventionist
Antoinette (aka Nikki), was born in San Antonio, TX and moved to Arizona during her teen years. She was blessed with parents and amazing role models to help lead her in the right direction. She successfully graduated and pursued every job she had in order to aspire. Nikki has a beautiful eight-year-old that keeps her on her toes as she is a very active mom. Nikki’s husband supports her in all that she does, and they believe with God as their lead, the possibilities are endless. She is a very positive person who attends church regularly and has strong faith. Nikki loves to set goals for herself, and her daughter loves this, also. Nikki is currently attending college and continuous work training to better equip herself in all methods. She hopes to some day open, operate, and run her own youth facility. Nikki’s hobbies include volleyball leagues, hiking, kickboxing, running, shooting, reading, and cleaning. She has received training in CPR, self-defense, use of force, crisis intervention, suicide prevention, chemical agents, domestic’s violence, national incident management systems, driver safety, cultural diversity, AED usage, and transportation/restraints. As a young girl, Nikki had an encounter that helped choose her career path. She wanted to work in law enforcement and soon became a Correctional Officer for the State of Arizona. She currently works at the maximum security prison where she deals with an array of adult offenders who are otherwise called “the worst of the worst.” This job allows Nikki to experience first hand a vast majority of personality types. She has developed successful skills in dealing with high tense situations, mediation, people on and off drugs, and extreme personality disorders. Due to her work environment, it is mandatory that Nikki stays physically fit and current on training. She has always believed that our youth will determine our future society, and it is with them we must begin to make a difference. Patience, knowledge, and concern are necessary in dealing with adolescents. Success is around the corner for all, we just need to get there.
