When Joey isn’t busy helping Pierce College students, faculty and staff with their perplexing computer issues as an IT Specialist, he enjoys listening to music, spending time with his sons, as well as watching (and playing!) basketball and football. A big kid at heart, he also still loves playing video games. He’s excited to create a genuine connection with PierceCast listeners and looks forward to exploring different perspectives and viewpoints—as well as shared ideas— related to current news and events.
Niki is the newest member of the Marcom team, serving as Administrative Assistant to both Marketing and Communications and Strategic Advancement. Originally from Southern California, Niki recently moved to Washington before joining us at Pierce. She comes to us with quite a few years of experience working in higher ed in Europe, immersing herself in the local cultures and languages. Niki looks forward to connecting with the college community through the podcast, and hopes listeners learn more about the college’s pursuit of its mission – while having fun along the way. When she’s not working wonders keeping two dynamic teams running smoothly, she can most likely be found outdoors, hiking, backpacking and/or camping with her adorable husky, Archie.
Tony loves being creative in his role as Student Success Manager for the office of eLearning at Pierce College. He’s also an active dad of two who enjoys the creativity of band practice with his kids. In his spare time, he has a penchant for riding motorcycles. He looks forward to highlighting, and having candid conversations with, a diverse range of individuals on air — compelling listeners to find out more on their own or even contribute their own voice— in the hopes of bringing the college community closer together after listening.
