Meet Nikki Graves '06 - The Rockport Group

"When we do the reviews for the shoes, I always think back to sitting in studio class at Curry, where we'd critique everyone's art pieces...One of my professors, Laurie Alpert, would always say that critiques are not something to be taken personally. In fact they help you progress and make something good, even better." - Nikki Graves '06, Global Quality Assurance Specialist, The Rockport Group.
