Peer Health Educator

Hi! My name is Nikki and I use she/her pronouns. I am an undergraduate student here at UW, and I am studying psychology! This will be my third year as a PHE, and now I will be a Peer Wellness Coach as well! I enjoy learning about the brain, and specifically about how we learn and teach. This intersecting interest led me to PHE- a way to connect my interest in the human mind and emotions to my interest in teaching and education.

As a Peer Health Educator and a Peer Wellness Coach, a core belief I hold is that we are ever changing beings. To grow and develop ourselves as we age and experience life is a part of fulfilling our endless potential as individuals and adapting to our environments. I also value seeing the unique qualities and distinctness in myself and everyone around me. This leads to my second core value, which is authenticity. I enjoy supporting those around me and getting to know the intricacies of each individual, and I find value in holding space for everyone.
