Have you seen The Devil Wears Prada? Replace Andy with Nicki and that’s how this Chicago native got her start in magazines. Canvassing Midtown in search of the perfectly gooey chocolate chip cookie for her boss’s Monday afternoon sugar craving—been there, done that. On call 24/7 in case of “emergency” (think drugstore runs for Monistat 7)—check. Got the picture?
