Exploring Life & Business with Nikki Burnett of Taste Life Nutrition

Nikki with familyAlright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?

Meet Trailblazer Nikki Burnett, Functional Nutritionist

Nikki picking an eggplant“I grew up in small-town Texas. As long as I can remember, I wanted to be a veterinarian – I never considered anything else. Even as I went through college, then grad school (at “The Cowboy Capital of the World”) all I wanted to do was play with horses – so that’s how I started my early career – playing with horses and helping manage a premier breeding operation where we held the breeding horses for a major country singer.

Then one day, as I walked through the barns dirty and sweaty, it hit me – ‘Is this REALLY what I want to do with my life??’ Ugh! So now what am I going to do?…”
