Get to know Nicole Jenkins
How long have you worked for the NTA? What is your role?
I have worked with the NTA for almost 2 years now as an Associate Instructor and really enjoy my role in supporting our students!
What do you love about working for the NTA?
I love working with the NTA because I get to be a part of a movement that I feel so passionate about. I am honored to support and empower our students with knowledge and a clinical skillset, so they can in turn help others. Together, through this ripple effect, I believe we have the power to shift the direction of our current disease epidemic and ultimately – change the world.

Heart-led, Receptive, Growing
Describe yourself in three words
Proactive, Resilient, Curious
What do you love the most about our community?
I have never seen a more passionate group of individuals with such a wide diversity of backgrounds! Everyone brings such a unique perspective to the community and I love learning from all of you.
What is your favorite fat?
Avocados! They are so versatile, yet wonderful on their own. A little crack of sea salt and a spoon and you are well on your way to a perfect snack.
What is your least favorite food?
Eggplant – It is really the only vegetable I do not enjoy, for whatever reason is was just never my thing. Sure, you can deep fry it and cover it in cheese and it’s totally edible, but it is not something I will go out of my way to consume.
What’s your most used cookbook or recipe blog and why?
Honestly, I don’t really use cookbooks or recipe blogs. I tend to just make things up as I go. I was a chemistry minor in college and loved it, so these days I tend use my kitchen as my experimental “lab”. Some things turn out great and others not so much, but it’s always fun to try.
What are you reading (or listening to) right now?
Brene Brown – Wow, that woman helps me navigate the world.
And my mom – always listen to your mom! 😉
