Niki Uyemura

Volunteer and Events Coordinator

Niki grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii, exploring the natural beauty of the island. After moving to San Luis Obispo to attend Cal Poly, she earned a B.S. in Biological Sciences with a minor in Environmental Studies in 2021.

Coming from an island, Niki grew up more interested in the ocean than land, but that flipped for her in college. While she still enjoys a fun beach day, botany fueled Niki’s study interests in her college career. Learning about the astonishing power of nature to appreciate it more deeply is a priority for Niki because nothing else is more magical!

In Niki’s free time, she enjoys creating art and bringing her creations to pop-up markets to meet folks in the community. Nothing makes her happier than getting creative with her art and spoiling her mini lop bunnies, Ku’uipo and Chihiro.
