Biography

Born in Swaziland, one of the last remaining Kingdoms in the world, Nikola grew up with an American mother and a Zimbabwean father. She moved through the African continent living in various countries and eventually settled in a small surf town in Cape Town. It was here, riding horses along the beautiful beaches, that she developed her love of the ocean.   An early fascination with people and diversity prompted her to study for a Bachelor's degree, majoring in Psychology and Sociology. Surrounded by the internationally renowned vineyards of Stellenbosch University, she developed a passion for fine foods, wines, and the high-end hospitality industry. Deciding that this avenue was worth pursuing, Nikola moved to the United States in 2014 and began her career in yachting. Raised by incredible mentors, she quickly rose through the ranks and became a chief stewardess from early on. She has extensively traveled the Bahamas, the U.S. East Coast, and the Mediterranean waters, which have given her an insider’s knowledge of incredible itineraries, onshore recommendations, and various destination expertise. With the majority of the vessels having been heavily chartered, she had her finger on the pulse of what a successful charter program entailed. Her role was frequently at the core of seamlessly tailoring unforgettable trips and ensuring that guests' expectations were not only met, but greatly exceeded. Though her longing for a land-based transition was calling, she did not wish to leave the charter market. Thus, she has naturally transitioned into a Charter Assistant role at one of the most prestigious firms in Fort Lauderdale. Here, she is surrounded by industry leaders and hopes to prove herself as a strong and dynamic team player within the company. In her free time, she can be found riding Harley Davidsons along the coastline with her husband, volunteering at the abandoned pet rescue center, immersing herself in creative projects such as interior design, as well as hosting dinner parties and entertaining friends.
