About Me

My Story

Hello! I’m Nikki. My mission is to help young women heal from autoimmunity by incorporating the principles of Functional Medicine.

If stumbled across my site “by accident” know that I believe we were brought together for a reason.

YOU are about to change your life.

I created Roots Functional Medicine because I believe that we have tremendous influence over our health and the health of our families through everyday choices, no matter how small they may be. I believe health should be an exciting and fulfilling journey.


My Journey

In a year my health went from amazing to rock bottom(first year of nursing school). I struggled with an autoimmune skin condition called hidradentitis. Initially, I turned to conventional medicine. After several months of perfect blood work, medications recommendations that would cause more harm than good, I decided no mainstream doctor was concerned with “why” I developed a vicious skin condition that left me unable to walk somedays. I decided to take control of my health and search for answers (answers that didn’t include side effects!). I tried a specific protocol to reboot my body and within days I could feel my body healing. BUT, I knew I needed someone who was more educated in this field of medicine. I saw my first functional medicine practitioner and it was life changing, she discovered all my underlying issues and I began to heal one month at a time. This all happened during nursing school and I believe it was God directing me to be a different type of healer. From that point on, I independently studied functional medicine in nursing school. Immediately after I graduated I continued my education to be a functional medicine practitioner through the Institute for Functional Medicine (My Dream!!). I am now here to help other young women heal from autoimmunity just like I did!

I now believe many autoimmune issues can be managed and even reversed through nutrition, functional medicine, and natural healing.

I passionately believe you can transform your health and life and I invite you to join me on this journey and get in touch for individualized support!
