Nikki is a registered and licensed dietitian who is passionate about helping each client find happiness through improving their relationship with food. She specializes in making complex concepts easy to understand in order to help clients challenge their beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors around food. She provides a nonjudgmental, open, and honest environment and enjoys incorporating lighthearted humor into her sessions as appropriate. She also enjoys working with, and learning about, neurodivergent individuals, including those with ADHD and Autism as well as hormone and nervous system regulation. To support her clients, Nikki believes in providing customizable care, including individual and group appointments, meal support, shopping assistance, and more.
Nikki teaches nutrition classes at a local Florida community college and, before joining Healthier Tomorrows, Nikki was the primary dietitian for the Orlando VA’s eating disorder interdisciplinary treatment team, where she developed program guidelines and worked with veterans at an intensive outpatient level of care, while also teaching an innovative intuitive eating class and seeing patients for chronic conditions and weight concerns using a non-diet approach.
Nikki attended Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) and obtained dual degrees in nutrition and psychology. She completed her dietetic internship and earned her Master of Science of Nutrition at Bowling Green State University.
Outside of working with her clients, Nikki enjoys all forms of crafting and DIY, reading, adventuring with her husband and two young sons, and collecting magnets and crystals.
