Hey I'm Ms. Nikki Den Dekker, also known as Trainer Nikki around the High School. I started as the Athletic Trainer at Waynesville High School in the 2019-2020 school year. This year I will be teaching both Sports Medicine 1 and Way Med. I graduated from Central Methodist University in 2017 with my Bachelors in Athletic Training. After that, I went on to complete a fellowship program where I finished my Masters in Exercises Science and specialized in corrective exercise movement in 2019. Since, I have moved to Waynesville where I am working in the Career-Embedded courses of Way-Med and Sports Medicine to educate our students on tools and life skills that would help them learn hands-on skills.
This will be a great year, and I look forward to working with you and your students this year to help them achieve their greatest successes.
