Rocket Scientist Turned Doctor | Dr. Niki Davis

Niki Davis, MD is a “rocket scientist” turned physician. She is board certified in both family medicine and lifestyle medicine. At age 13, she started removing animal products from her diet because she didn’t feel it was healthy. Once in college, she obtained bachelor's and master's degrees in mechanical engineering and worked on the space shuttle program for several years. However, instead of rockets on her mind, she was constantly thinking about health and nutrition - helping her own family members improve their health and their lives by switching to a plant-based lifestyle.

She eventually found her way back to her passion after leaving her engineering career to apply for medical school. She graduated from the University of Utah School of Medicine in 2017 and completed a Family Medicine residency program in 2020. While in residency, in addition to serving as Wellness Chief, she helped form Plant-Based Montana, an advocacy group with the mission to educate healthcare providers and the general public about the benefits of a plant-based diet.

She has had the pleasure of speaking at plant-based events around the country and has been lucky enough to train with phenomenal mentors such as Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Michael Klaper, Dr. Anthony Lim, and Dr. Alan Goldhamer, among others. She is a regular guest on Chef AJ’s YouTube channel show and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) Podcast. She has a certificate in plant-based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies through eCornell and is certified in The Starch Solution.

She feels extremely grateful to be doing what she loves every day - helping people live their best lives. In addition to being available for TeleHealth appointments, Dr. Davis will also be running plant-based wellness retreats in locations around the world, once safe to do so.
