Nikki oversees the team providing exceptional care to the residents of Northampton Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. A native of York County, she began her career in Healthcare Management over 20 years ago. She graduated Cum Laude from Norfolk State University with a B.S. in Health Services Management with a concentration on Food, Science and Nutrition. Nikki joined VHS in 2006 as an Assistant Administrator working at several of our convalescent and rehabilitation facilities. In 2013, she was promoted to the Administrator of York Nursing & Rehabilitation Center and served in this role until 2016. After working the past several years as a Regional Operations Manager for a Multispecialty Physician Group, she rejoined the VHS team. She realized that her true passion is in servicing the residents and staff in our long-term care communities and believes that to be successful is understanding that “what you do is far greater than what you say” from Stephen Covey. In her spare time, Nikki enjoys traveling and spending time on the water with her family and their rainbow of rescued labs.
Erin joined the VHS team as an Administrative Secretary in 2017, and has recently moved to the position of Assistant Administrator at Northampton Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. Erin has lived in the Hampton Roads area all her life, and finds joy in serving her community. Her previous community service with at-risk and special needs populations has prepared her for the patient centered care ideology to which all VHS facilities ascribe. After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree from Bluefield College, Erin discovered that caring for the long-term community, both its residents and their families, is where her passion lies. During her spare time, Erin enjoys spending time with her family.
Amanda, leads the nursing team at Northampton. She began her career with Virginia Health Services 13 years ago as an Assistant Director of Nursing and moved into the Infection Preventionist role. Before starting her career with VHS, Amanda worked at Memorial Medical Center of East Texas on the Medical/Surgical floor. She is grateful for the experience because it made her the nurse she is today. Amanda also was a CNA for 10 years before attending nursing school at Thomas Nelson Community College, graduating in 2005. In her spare time she enjoys running, biking, walking various trails in the area and weight lifting. She also enjoys spending time with her husband of more than 20 years and their two daughters. Amanda has had the pleasure of working with the elderly most of her nursing career. She takes great pride in knowing that she had a part in their rehabilitation and, at times, became their extended family. She believes nursing is at its best when the approach is holistic, knowing your residents and really listening to what they have to say. Including them in all aspects of their care makes for a more successful experience.
