Owner of Keiki Therapy, LLC.

Waimea Location 

Nicole graduated from Mount Mary University in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy. She has over twenty years experience working in outpatient pediatric clinics, hospitals, schools, and home health.  Nicole moved to Hawaii with her husband and two children in the summer of 2010 and started working in the Waimea and Kohala public schools. Nicole was surprised of the limited outpatient pediatric clinics for children with special needs. The dream and vision of opening a private practice in Waimea came true in 2019. She decided to expand Keiki Therapy to service families in the Hilo and Kona area. In Jan. 2022, she opened Keiki Therapy Hilo office and added home visits for families living on the west side of the island. Educating parents and family members on how to maximize a child's independence in daily living skills is Nicole's passion. In her free time, she enjoys playing pickleball, swimming, snorkeling, and hiking with her family.
