About Me

Hi, I'm Nichelle.  Certified strength, nutrition and mindset coach.  I'm named after the real-life actor who first portrayed the iconic  Captain Uhura on the one-of-a-kind TV drama Star Trek.  My mission is to help people at every stage boldly chart course toward their strongest selves. 

I know a thing or two about confidently navigating change. 


At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, I followed my heart cross-country relocating to Oakland, CA from New York City to marry the love of my life.


18 years ago, I got my first fitness certification and a few years after that I retired from my career as a litigator and higher education administrator.  My love of sports and passion for wellness propelled me toward my current career.  


My client roster includes both in-person and virtual clients in major cities around the world. 


I especially love helping midlife adults stay strong, athletic and on top of their game.  I take pride in continuing education and training, obtaining certifications that support my clients through life’s many changes and ensure a holistic and functional approach to wellness.

I am also a group fitness instructor and corporate wellness architect for Bay Area and New York City values-driven organizations.
