As Assistant Director, Education & Finance, she will oversee grant writing, be a trainer and implement Refuge’s core curriculum. She will continue to be the editor of The Ninja, Refuge Memphis’ own newsletter, as well as oversee all media outlets and public relations.

Niki Schoggen has been volunteering behind the scenes and on the front lines at Refuge Memphis for the past four years. She has also been the Director of Events for the Monogram Loves Kids Foundation for the past 6 years where she assisted in raising well over $1.1 million for children’s charities across the country.

Currently employed with The Southland Companies in downtown Memphis as Executive Assistant to Terry Lynch, Walls Limousine Service, Inc. in Walls, Mississippi as Business Manager, and Southern Pawn & Jewelry in Memphis as Full Charge Bookkeeper, she never loses focus on the needs of the people around her.

Project and results driven, she displays the ability to set appropriate boundaries between her head and her heart, thinking objectively and clearly about what the best decision is, not just the easy one or the one that makes everyone happy. She firmly believes in hard work, dedication, and second chances.

Having overcome a mound of adversity as a young adult, she is the definition of perseverance yet humbled enough to walk arm in arm with someone who is hurting educating them along the way. If she is in your corner, you have a life-long cheerleader.

Niki has recently been accepted into Notre Dame’s online program to complete her BS in Professional Studies with a concentration in Organizational Management. She is currently enrolled in Charis Bible College where she plans to complete the 2 year online program by spring of 2020.

She has been married to Phillip Schoggen for 15 years. They have two grown step-children, Matthew & Blake Schoggen, from whom they have one granddaughter and are expecting both a granddaughter and grandson.

She and Phillip reside in Lakeland, Tennessee with son Hayden and daughter Alexis.
