Nikki now continues her work as Clinical Innovations Specialist with Harps Food Stores, Inc and Director of Education for MTM The Future Today.
In her role as Clinical Innovations Specialist and Director of Education, Nikki is known by program participants as MTM Nikki and she works to improve patient health in the state of Arkansas and across the nation by training pharmacy teams to provide enhanced clinical services to their patients. She works with the Arkansas Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control on grant programs designed to demonstrate the role that community pharmacists serve in the changing world of healthcare and the impact pharmacists can have on patient and population health. Nikki works with payers to improve patient health and the quality of patient care their beneficiaries receive, while aiming to decrease total cost of care for the plan. As an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Pharmacy, Nikki teaches the Medication Therapy Management Advanced Training Elective Course to help soon-to-be new pharmacists apply the knowledge from their didactic coursework to the enhanced clinical services they will be providing as leaders in community pharmacies and members of the healthcare team.
Alongside the Harps Clinical Team, Nikki continues her work toward advancing the profession of pharmacy through designing and implementing innovative clinical service models that integrate pharmacists into the care team and fill healthcare gaps in the community pharmacy and ambulatory care settings.
