Nikki, 36, of Bronx, New York was raised in a close-knit family of strong black women. Nikki's mother, who saw her own mother struggling with poverty and alcohol, was determined to have a better life for her and her children. Because Nikki's mother worked full time while also going to college, Nikki was mainly raised by her grandmother. Nikki was also close with her father, although he was a drug addict and was in and out of Nikki's life. Nikki excelled in school and dance and took pride in taking care of her younger sister. At age 12, Nikki's grandmother died leaving Nikki devastated. Nikki's mother moved the family to Maryland with the hope of providing them a better home and neighborhood. Nikki, however, began hanging out with a rebellious crowd, skipping school and experimenting with drugs. After discovering that Nikki was using crack, Nikki's mother put her in a drug rehabilitation program. Nikki left the program early and moved back to New York to reunite with her father. Nikki continued to use drugs and had two daughters. After Nikki's youngest daughter was diagnosed with depression at age 3, Nikki stopped using crack but was soon addicted to methadone and prescription pills.

Intervention won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Series.
