Nicky received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in San Marcos, CA in 2015 with High Honors. Before graduate school, she earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Business Management from Arizona State University in 2010. She thrives working with athletes, especially with gymnasts, cheerleaders, and basketball players. Nicky uses techniques such as myofascial release, dry needling, spinal manipulation, and functional movements to get her patients back to what they truly want to do. Every day is different with Nicky, whether it’s a new technique or a new exercise in order for her patients to be challenged appropriately for what their goal is. Being in physical therapy several times herself, she understands the importance of rehab and being progressed properly.
Nicky is a native Arizonian who is an avid hiker and kickboxer, but also maintains her gymnastics skills with the help of yoga. She is a diehard Phoenix/Arizona sports fan for her Suns and Cardinals and loves going to games. She loves finding new hidden gems all around the valley, whether it’s a new restaurant, dive bar, or outdoor activity.
