A Chicago native, Dr. Nicollette Garrett, D.C., grew up always knowing she wanted to help people. Now, she’s thrilled to be serving patients and community members as an associate chiropractor at Chiro One Wellness Center of Lakeview.
After getting her bachelor’s degree in exercise science at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Dr. Nikki went on to achieve her doctorate of chiropractic at Logan College of Chiropractic. While in school, she was class secretary, president of the Student American Black Chiropractic Association (SABCA) and interned at the St. Louis VA. She is certified in acupuncture, the Webster technique and pediatric chiropractic.
In practice, it’s Dr. Nikki’s personal mission to have a positive impact on every patient she treats, so they can do the same for others. She’s driven by those small health improvements—as she says, “Small changes bring about large gains.” Seeing people get better and live their best lives is her favorite part of being a chiropractor; Dr. Nikki wants every patient happy and pain-free, so they can continue doing what makes them feel fulfilled.
In her spare time, Dr. Nikki enjoys cooking, shopping, hot yoga and spending time with her nieces and nephews. Her favorite quote is by Oprah Winfrey: “Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create.” It reminds her that it is never too late to achieve your goals or make change, and that each hour and minute is a chance for a new start.
