Mikala was born and raised in Oklahoma City. She graduated from Bethany High School in 2014 and in 2018 graduated with her Bachelor’s in Business. In 2019, she chose to return to school to pursue her passion in dietetics, graduating with her Master’s in Nutrition and Food Science in 2022.
With both parents being chiropractors, a holistic approach to health has always been a cornerstone for Mikala. That foundation led Mikala to her passion— supporting health through nutrition— as she recognizes the influence food and nutrition has on the root cause of many conditions.
During her dietetic internship, Mikala had many opportunities to gain experience in different areas of health care. She spent time at OU Children’s, OU Physicians, Integris, as well as many outpatient clinics, including FusionMD. She was elated to have the opportunity to learn from some of the best functional medicine practitioners Oklahoma has to offer, and she is thrilled to continue to work alongside the practitioners at FusionMD, achieving the holistic approach she is so passionate about. She loves working with her patients, helping pinpoint the role nutrition plays in achieving their health goals.
In her free time, Mikala loves spending time in nature and at coffee shops. She enjoys yoga, taking care of her numerous houseplants, and is always looking for opportunities to continue learning about nutrition and health.
