Biography:
My name is Nikki Triggs-Valle, Principal/Director of LFPA Alta Mesa. I started working with children in 1996 as a counselor for incarcerated youth with Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections. While working with troubled teens, I found that working with kids was my passion. I worked as an elementary teacher seven years before moving to school administration in 2008. Although all of my work with children has been in Arizona, I was born and raised in North Carolina and I am a southern girl at heart!
