Meet Nicole Cooper

Nicole Cooper was raised in Southern California and was very active in a variety of sports, including gymnastics and soccer. As an athlete, she learned the value of exercise, hard work, and teamwork. However, many injuries sidelined Nicole, and she wanted to understand how to prevent and rehab these injuries. She was inspired to pursue a career in kinesiology, the study of how the body moves, at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.

During her studies at Cal Poly, she started competing in triathlons and became interested in sports nutrition. After earning her BS, Nicole added the nutrition component and became a Registered Dietitian. As a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer, coupled with her expertise in nutrition, Nicole helped clients pursue their personal goals — from weight loss to competing in half marathons. She loved inspiring clients to find a happy balance of exercise, healthy food choices, and injury prevention.

With a diverse educational background and life experience, Nicole feels that her patience and caring demeanor are perfect attributes for the BeWell program at Stanford University. She looks forward to guiding participants to success in reaching their health and well-being goals.
