Nikki became a 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 ‘recently’ completed a tedious coordinated nutrition and dietetics program with Rutgers University of New Jersey, fulfilling the required 1,200 minimum hours of supervised practice to pursue her goal of becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN). After taking the ‘Registration Examination for Dietitians’, Nikki aims to continue expanding her education and credentials to specialize in a variety of arenas, and inevitably, pursue her own 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 more integrative and functional approach to individualized care by focusing on the root causes of chronic disease (or “dis-ease”) and working proactively via preventative 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.
