Before medical school, Nicky worked as a residential treatment counselor for pregnant and parenting teen mothers. She also volunteered her time at a local hospital as a birth doula. Within family medicine, Nicky is particularly interested in women’s health as well as endoscopy and vasectomy.

After fellowship, Nicky and her family will move to Mountain Home, Idaho where she will practice full spectrum family medicine.
