Contributing Writer


Parenting, Health, Wellness


Barnard College, Columbia University, New York University



Nikhita has written extensively about health, parenting, and wellness since 2014, and has enjoyed a successful career in the digital space as both an editor and strategist. A New York-based writer, she primarily uses her contacts in the mental health and medical industry to help readers deal with stress and burnout, prejudices or racial bias—especially in the parenting space, and the mind-body connection. After suffering from her own hormonal health scares in 2014, Nikhita has made it her passion to help readers find their own personal prescription to manage their mental and physical health.


Nikhita graduated from Barnard College with a degree in English and Psychology. She also holds a M.A. in Magazine Journalism from New York University.
