Names and Faces: Nikki Pederson
Nikki Pederson Schuberth tries her best to make sure that talent from the Brazos Valley well represented in Hollywood.
Stars like Brianna Hildebrand, Rico and Raini Rodriguez, and Steve Larkin all have one thing in common. They are all alums of the Nikki Pederson Talent Agency.
Nikki never thought she would be putting kids on the path to Hollywood.
"I started out 20 years ago doing Miss Texas USA Pageant. When we outgrew that there was a director at Miss Texas USA who thought I would be good at this type of work," she said.
Now she uses her work to positively influence the next generation of actors in a tough business.
"It's hard on the kids and it's hard on families that are out there. But then I get a phone call from one of my kids out in LA and they've booked something or they got close or they got a call back and it reminds me that we've changed lives."
As is the goal with any parent, she gives all her kids the best advice she can give.
"I want them to believe in themselves and believe that dreams come true," she said.
