Hi There!

My name is Nikki, and I’m so glad you’ve found me here! I’m a writer, animal lover and anti-animal tourism advocate, adventure seeker, business owner and founder of Blue Whale Communications, and an accidental entrepreneur.

I created The Happy Hippo blog as a way to share the personal side of owning a business – more about me and the behind-the-scenes, and less about Blue Whale. Here you’ll find lots of stories about travel, animal rights, entrepreneurship and growing a business – and tips on how you can do it all, too!

If you have any questions on social media, content marketing, freelancing, growing your side-hustle, travel, or animal tourism – send me a message! I love connecting with new friends all across the globe.

Happy Adventuring!
