In 2018 Dr. Wright moved to North Carolina with her wife, Jess, and their three fur-babies. Their menagerie includes Beau, a handsome pitbull/boxer mix; Jaxson, a silly boxer or velveteen hippo, as she calls him, and Ploop, their kitty, and self-proclaimed pack leader. When she is not busy practicing veterinary medicine, Nikki enjoys hiking, yoga, and gardening.

Dr. Wright and the Mills Creek Animal Hospital team are looking forward to meeting you and your beloved pets!
