About Me

Welcome! My name is Nikki. Among other things, I am a Native American mother and attorney. I currently live in sunny New Mexico with my husband and toddler.

Native Mommy Lawyer is a blog for mothers trying to find relatable personal experiences about different aspects of life and parenthood. My articles cover topics in the lifestyle and parenting realm.

More about me

I grew up on the Navajo reservation in New Mexico and currently reside in the greater Albuquerque area. New Mexico has a special place in my heart and will always be home for me.

I’ve been a practicing attorney for about ten years in state government. I love the work I do, especially the research and writing aspect.

My whole world changed in 2019 when I became a mom. My toddler is one of my greatest joys and I am passionate about raising her with awareness, love, and respect for others. I’m grateful that I get to experience the world through her.

In 2020, I married my daughter’s father. From our first meeting to dating, moving in together, having a daughter, everything has fallen in place. Marriage is new to us but we are loving the comfort and security it provides.
