Born in a small town in South Georgia, Nikki DeLoach always knew she wanted to be an entertainer. She started dancing at the age of three, eventually adding singing, modeling and acting to her repertoire. All her hard work paid off when at age 12, DeLoach became a member of “The Mickey Mouse Club,” alongside Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Ryan Gosling. After “MMC,” DeLoach spent several years in Los Angeles pursuing acting and landed a starring role opposite Mark Wahlberg and Bill Paxton in the feature film Traveller, and the TV series “Misery Loves Company.” She also played Anthony LaPaglia’s daughter in the television movie “Never Give Up: The Jimmy V Story.” In 1997, DeLoach put her acting career on hold to enter the world of pop music, signing with RCA and BMG Records to become part of the girl group Innosense. When the group disbanded in 2003, DeLoach returned to Hollywood and has gone on to enjoy a successful and diverse acting career.

DeLoach’s recent credits include her starring role on MTV’s critically acclaimed series, “Awkward,” where she was considered one of television’s “hottest moms” with her portrayal of Lacey Hamilton. Although she is perhaps best known for her role on “Awkward” and the iconic “The Mickey Mouse Club,” DeLoach has also been guest starring on some of TV’s biggest hit shows, including “NCIS,” “Criminal Minds,” “CSI,” CSI: NY,” “Cold Case,” “Mad Men” and “Without a Trace,” among many others. She was also a series regular on the popular show “North Shore.” Her films include Love & Other Drugs, Flying Lessons, opposite Maggie Grace and Hal Holbrook, and the French comedy Hollywoo. Hallmark Channel viewers will also recognize DeLoach from her starring roles in the network’s original movies “The Perfect Catch,” “Christmas Land,” “A Dream of Christmas” and “Truly, Madly, Sweetly,” which recently premiered as part of the network’s annual Fall Harvest programming event. She also developed, executive produced, and starred in “Reunited at Christmas,” which premiered on the network last November.

Outside of acting, DeLoach is dedicated to sharing her passions and ideas with others. She cofounded What We Are, a community of women that celebrates their unfiltered selves. She is also a passionate supporter and spokesperson for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and The Alzheimer’s Association. DeLoach also shares her love for acting by coaching at the renowned Warner Laughlin Studios.
