Nikki VanRy

Digital Content Strategist
Learn More About Nikki VanRy
  • What is your favorite thing about what you do for work?:There are at least 5 billion Google searches every day. And, sure, some of those are super goofy, like "where can I find adorable elephant pants" or "cat falling off a chair GIFs," but some of them represent the most important questions we'll ask as people. When someone searches for terms like "sharp pains in my chest" or "children's books about death" or "short wedding poems," they're looking for answers they can trust. Answers that can guide them through some of the most joyous or sad points in their life. Every time I write a new piece of content online (even for the silly ones), I remember that the words I write online matter. When I write great content that ranks well, I'm directly helping people through those joyous or sad times. 
  • Favorite Animal and Why:Dogs are the purest creatures, and they're too good for this world. *full-stop*
  • Favorite Food:I will eat my entire body weight in samosas, pleaseandthankyou.
