Nik grew up in Hillsboro, Oregon and attended Oregon State University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. Growing up playing sports and developing an increased interest in learning about training and physical health modalities during high school and into college, he decided physical therapy was a route where he could continue to grow his knowledge to help people move their best and keep doing the things they love. Nik has also previously worked as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor at OSU, and plans on continuing to build practical experience in exercise and PT fields before going to graduate school to finish his education to become a licensed physical therapist.
In his free time, Nik enjoys playing basketball and soccer, as well as exploring new, unknown, and obscure corners of music and its history. He also enjoys learning about clothing design, and hopes to eventually be able to create unique custom pieces.
