Nicki Sims was a District Manager with Total Petroleum for 20 years. She started in Phoenix and later moved to Colorado, and after a year in Denver, she moved to Ft. Collins where she was responsible for opening and operating all-new convenience stores and truck stops in Northern Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska.
After retiring from Total she moved back to Phoenix, where she worked for Cricket Wireless until she retired. She has also owned businesses installing wallpaper and faux finishes.
She is now permanently retired and lives in Buckeye, AZ. While looking for volunteer opportunities, she discovered Silver Lining Riding and fell in love with the organization. She tells everyone, “It does my heart good, to be a part of helping a student grow in confidence and strength from their first day. To see their smiles and how excited they are to ride is my therapy”.
