Nicole Smithson

Executive Assistant | Operations

Nikki is responsible for behind the scenes operations at OPAC. 

Nikki began her career at Vibe Yoga in Menlo Park, managing and running one of the largest yoga studios in the South Bay. With her organizational mindset and knack for communicating effectively, Nikki created a work space that was built for success. She led the sales  and operations teams, growing the studio to over 500 members within the first year of opening. After managing the studio for nearly three years, Nikki realized she could better use her experience helping other startups run smoothly.


Nikki went on to become the Executive Assistant to the CEO of Gazillion Entertainment. Her key roles were coordinating and communicating with all employees and clients, boardroom support, event management, and working closely with the HR director. She used her detailed oriented nature to set the company up with performance and organizational standards crucial to fostering key relationships and driving revenue-generating techniques and strategies. 

When Nikki was introduced to Gordon Fallone during her time at Gazillion, they made a fast connection and worked together seamlessly. When the opportunity came to work with OPAC, she knew it would be a good fit.


Nikki graduated with a BS in Integrative Physiology and Environmental Sociology from the University of Colorado Boulder.
