Nichole “Nikki” Jervis has been a long-time participant and supporter of Arts in the Tri-State since a young age in church theater and college acting in senior plays for Marshall Theater. Her children began their own journey in the arts and dance when 4th Avenue Arts first opened their doors as Jeslyn Performing Arts Center and her entire family has been an active part throughout the years assisting with costuming, working backstage, prop making/scenic design and she herself appeared on stage in "The Grinch" & "Sleeping Beauty". In addition, Ms. Nikki has been creating costumes and commissioned cosplays over the last 10 years. Ms. Nikki recently took a leap of faith and left the public sector to join 4th Avenue Arts as their full time Executive Director & Costume Designer finally pursuing her true passion working full-time in the arts! Her most recent costume designs appeared on stage in 4th Avenue Arts productions of “Baba Yaga”, “Music, Movement & Merriment”, “2021 Spring Showcase”, “Jewels” and “Fierce Fairytales”, as well as a special project in collaboration with the Huntington Museum of Art for their Arts Integrated Tour on the “Bauhaus Exhibit” & a dance on film, “Grimm’s Fairytales”.
