MS Occupational Therapy, New York University
Niki chose occupational therapy because of her passion for human psychology, child development, and advocacy. She loves being part of a profession that promotes independence and inclusion for all people. Witnessing children reach milestones and master skills, inspires her to continue growing as a clinician. Niki appreciates that NAPA is a hub for innovation, creativity, and learning. Her special interests include feeding therapy; she hopes to become a feeding specialist to work with children with sensory and oral motor challenges. Cooking, hot yoga, running, live music, and discovering new restaurants around Los Angeles are how she sparks joy.
