Nikki Tallent - Habitat for Humanity

What is your history in Hartselle and with your business?
I was born and raised in Decatur. I lived most of my adult life in other cities but recently moved back to the area and now live in Hartselle.
In July 2019, I began a career with Habitat for Humanity of Morgan County. This affiliate has 2 neighborhoods, one in Hartselle and one in Decatur. Phoenix Place Subdivision, in Hartselle, has 18 lots. Our current build for the Stitts family will be completed in a few weeks, leaving only 2 lots available. 

What is your history with HACC and the Ambassador program?
I became an Ambassador in July of 2019 and serve on the Executive Committee as well. The HACC allows time with like-minded business professionals that care about one another. HACC provides a wide variety of opportunities and events to connect with potential business partners. I look forward to working with this incredible group and mentoring new members with my fellow Ambassadors. The key is to get involved and take advantage of the many opportunities open to you by becoming a member. Trust me, it works.
