Priest Nikki Seger has served St. Michael’s since Sept, 2014. Her goal as a priest is to encourage people to find or strengthen their own spirituality in a personal and meaningful way, and to find God in all things.
Tackling a career change to ministry after managing a research lab and then, managing an MBA leadership program was only the latest in the ambitious quests Nikki has pursued. She has run the grueling 135 mile Ultramarathon in Death Valley – twice.
Today, when not ministering, Nikki loves to kayak and fly fish and further, loves to teach anyone who has the least bit of interest how to cast. She finds the connection between fly fishing and spirituality an easy transition. Annually, she conducts retreats for women who want to learn more about fly fishing, following up on the twelve years she spent professionally teaching the art of fly fishing to others . http://www.tlsohio.edu/component/content/article/16-news-events/355-stream-nikki-seger
Nikki received her undergrad degree from Louisiana State University (LSU) in Philosophy, and her graduate degree from The University of Iowa in Exercise Science (Biomechanics). Her Master’s of Divinity is from Bexley Hall Seminary.
She and her wife, Jennifer, are parents to one wildly entertaining cat, Boo. (Unfortunately, Boo is playing with catnip in cat heaven.)
“As a priest, fly angler, runner and wife, I’m all about playing and praying. Relationship to others and God’s creation fills me with joy and love. If I can share my passions, I am happiest.”
