The interim tag for Nikki Tobias has been removed as she becomes executive director of Peace Place.

Following a two month-plus search the Peace Place Board of Directors selected Nikki Tobias to head the domestic violence organization. Tobias was named interim director in April following the resignation of the previous director.

"The Board is pleased to announce Nikki’s appointment," said Peace Place Board Chairman Dock Sisk in a news release. "We are excited about the direction the agency is headed under Nikki’s leadership and support her vision for the future of Peace Place. Nikki’s passion for and dedication to the success of Peace Place over the last few years is evident and unmatched."

Tobias started as a volunteer at Peace Place before later serving on the board of directors where her role also involved being the vice-chairperson.

As executive director she will oversee staff, shelter operations, housing and a thrift store and be involved with fundraising and grants.

Tobias has degrees in education, counseling and college student personnel and a doctoral degree in counseling and human development services. Her career has included nine years of administrative and supervisory experience and 10 years of retail management experience.

"I am thrilled and proud to have the opportunity to serve Peace Place, our clients and the community in this new capacity," Tobias said in the release. "Peace Place provides valuable services to the victims and survivors of domestic violence and works to raise awareness about the effects of relationship violence throughout the community. We pride ourselves in working with local law enforcement and other community partners to improve the lives of our clients and to reduce the incidents of domestic violence in our service area and beyond."
