Nikki became a Nutrition and Dietetics Technician, Registered (NDTR) in 2014, and since, has been working as a clinical consultant in the realm of long-term care, skilled nursing, and sub-acute care/rehabilitation. Prior to that, her background included working in acute care, weight management, and sales management.
In addition to consulting as a technician, she more recently completed a tedious Coordinated Program in Nutrition and Dietetics with Rutgers University of New Jersey to pursue her goal of becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and is now eligible to sit for the Registration Examination for Dietitians. Nikki, the RDN is coming soon!
Having just accepted a position working for our amazing Veterans in the outpatient setting, Nikki foresees great opportunity to grow with and help expand the focus on whole-body health.
Being a glutton for lifetime learning, she aims to continue expanding her education and credentials to specialize in a variety of arenas (ex: becoming an Integrative and Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner [IFNCP]). Her hopes are to inevitably expand the usage and knowledge of Integrative and Functional care through her work, whether that be with the government or through pursuing her own (side) business venture.
Thoroughly enjoying the challenges provided from clinical nutrition, she plans to expand upon that base to continue endorsing, mentoring, and aiding in helping others reach and obtain their health goals through a tailored individualized care approach by focusing on the root causes of chronic disease and working proactively via outpatient nutrition.
Nikki believes it is important to build upon sturdy foundations; striving to only deliver the most current, reputable, evidence-based information when it comes to nutrition and overall wellness in hopes to educate others while cultivating confidence in nutrition-related topics and healthy relationships with food.
Promoting balance is her key approach to helping create improvements for those who seek change (in all stages of life), as it is important to make suitable, life-lasting changes that will be maintainable to endure a healthy lifestyle, long-term. She strives to encourage eating real, nutritious foods (sans any fad-diets or special products to lean upon), which inevitably cultivate better educated, prepared, and adaptable health-and-nutrition warriors.
