Hello there - thanks for stopping by! My name is Nikki and it’s a pleasure to meet you!
As a member of the John C. Maxwell coaching, speaking, and training team and a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC), it is my passion to help retiring or injured athletes on the path to recovery and bring hope that there is life and purpose after a debilitating injury or change in careers.
Since my certification by the BOC as an athletic trainer in 2010, I have worked in the physical therapy clinic setting with patients in all walks of life. I have also worked on the field as an ATC in the collegiate NCAA arena. I've found that both athletes and non-athletes who endure a severe injury need to see that hope and healing will come in time. Sometimes an injury sets us on a new path, and that's ok. I have experienced a severe athletic injury myself, and am living proof that there is abundant life after such a setback! I am uniquely qualified to help you on your journey from hopelessness to renewed joy and purpose after your injury. Contact me here and let's talk soon!
I have led a group of 40+ peers to 11 different countries in Central America, Southeast Asia, and Africa. In this position I did peer to peer mentorship; was the liaison between the staff in the states, the organizations we worked with, and the group I was traveling with; planned and facilitated weekend debriefs and leadership development seminars, did confrontation management, and loved and supported my squad mates. My experience as a missionary returning to "real life" back in the U.S.A. has led me to help returning missionaries as they navigate the process of continuing a vibrant purposeful life after their missions commitment has ended. I am proud to be partnering with M2B Ministries in this venture.
My friends describe me as joyful, sunshine, genuine, vibrant, intuitive, motivating, compassionate, encouraging, life-giving, silly, fun, optimistic, devoted, adventurous, athlete, positive, & passionate. For the most part this sums me up! My strengths-finder test shows my traits: 1) positive, 2) responsibility, 3) belief, 4) connector, and 5) developer. And if you are curious, my Meyers-Briggs is ISTJ.
For now, I live in beautiful Southern California and I am in love with the ocean. I am blessed to live a few miles from the beach. I enjoy traveling and have been to 17 countries to date and want to add to my list! Travel and ministry is in my blood, and I know there are many more countries to visit in the near future.
If you want to know more about me, don’t hesitate to ask!
Looking forward to getting to know you better!
