Nicky Spiva

Biography

I picked up ultimate when a friend dragged me to a tournament as a junior in high school. Turns out, I loved it.

Outside of ultimate, I am a program specialist for the Charter Schools Office in the School District of Philadelphia. Basically, I support the development of annual evaluations of charter schools in the city. Check out our reports.

Fun Facts about Nicky:

  • I write left-handed.
  • I’ve broken both the middle and pointer fingers on my right hand playing ultimate.
  • I believe we should say “person-defense” instead of “man-defense” in mixed settings because down with the patriarchy.
