DPT – Doctor of Physical Therapy
Nikki is a licensed physical therapist at our Grandville office. She grew up in Chelsea, Michigan before beginning her journey west that has ended in Grand Rapids. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Albion College where she was able to run on both the cross country and track teams, then went on to Grand Valley State University where she earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
Nikki is passionate about treating the whole patient with holistic and function-maximizing interventions, and she loves helping people find creative solutions to live their most full life. This applies for people seeking to maximize function at work, in their sport, and even in their hobbies. She has a breadth of interests in regard to practice areas, however she has the most depth in treating the patient with pelvic health concerns. She is pursuing certification as a Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner accordingly, and she also enjoys integrating yoga into treatment for improved overall wellness.
Nikki enjoys practicing yoga, caring for her many houseplants, dancing, travelling, snowboarding, swimming, playing cards, and petting other people’s dogs. She is blessed to get to do those things alongside her husband.

Thank you for your help in my recovery. Wade and Marla have certainly helped me with their therapy after the knee surgery and the broken arm. All of you have been extremely kind as you guided me through the various exercises that have re-energized the many muscles that have helped me walk and get close to normal again. Your smiles, encouragements, the family atmosphere has been very helpful throughout the process. It starts with the smile and welcome that Kayla gives each time I walk in the door. Thanks so much to each of you for your caring attitude.Virgil
