Nikki Powell

Nikki Powell is The MASIC Foundation’s bookkeeper and a mum of 2.
Nikki suffered a third degree tear after the birth of her first child in 2013, but was very lucky to have no long term consequences. Nikki is keen to promote MASIC’s passion to support mothers and educate, as it was something Nikki herself wasn’t aware of when having her daughter and feels knowledge could have helped prevent this.
Nikki joined MASIC in January 2021 after deciding to retrain as a bookkeeper when both her children joined full time school. She is currently undertaking AAT studies.
