Dr. Nikki

Dr. Nicole Kielkowicz, also known as Dr. Nikki, is a nature-loving, adventure enthusiast, who grew up in Edmonton, Alberta. Her passion for health led her to move to the USA to pursue her Doctor of Chiropractic at Life Chiropractic College West.

Dr. Nikki’s journey in Chiropractic started in 2011 when she was involved in a boating accident that left her concussed, suffering from headaches and little sleep for months. Feeling very frustrated, Dr. Nikki finally decided to give chiropractic a chance. After experiencing chiropractic care, Dr. Nikki felt a significant improvement in health and function. Interested in learning more, Dr. Nikki changed degree routes, where her studies focused on Neuroscience at the University of Alberta. She eventually pursued her Doctorate in Chiropractic, and after graduation opened up a practice in San Clemente, California. She lived and worked in Southern California for over a year before deciding to move back to the Great North.

Dr. Nikki could not imagine her life without chiropractic and knows that she would not be who she is today without it. Dr. Nikki’s passion is working with moms and kids and helping them heal so that they can keep doing what they love.
