Nikki received her B.S. in Health Promotion and a minor in Dance from the University of Iowa. That dance training inspired her to pursue a career in Pilates. After training with Physicalmind Method, she went on to become certified by the Pilates Guild. She has continued to learn through Romana's Pilates seminars and from her clients every day. Since 1994, Nikki's work with people aged 16 to 95 years has allowed her to guide many different types of bodies to become stronger, more balanced and less hampered by pain. Working with such a variety of clients - healthy to injured, and athletic to sedentary - has formed Nikki's philosophy, 'Every body is different, yet Pilates is beneficial to all'.
