Prior to law school, Rikki worked for the Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice as a summer student from 2017 to 2020.
In her undergraduate, she received a bachelor of arts & science. In fulfilment of this degree, Rikki submitted a senior thesis, Voting Behaviour in Canada: Analyzing the Relationship Between Partisanship, Region, and Issue Voting in Literature and the 2015 Canadian Federal Election Data, which involved quantitative and qualitative data analysis using the Canadian Election Study Data. Her thesis received an award for being one of the top 10 per cent in her graduating class for its originality and novel research in the field.

She was hired as the Tort Law Course assistant and provided incoming Indigenous first-year students with academic tutoring and personal mentoring.

In addition, she worked part time as a research assistant for three different Allard Law professors.
