About Me

My name is Nikki Barba


I am an occupational therapist with a passion for helping people live independently at home. I have been working with the geriatric population since 2016, and I have seen firsthand the challenges that people face with unexpected life changes, conditions and normal aging. I am inspired by the power of home modifications and with problem solving research based solutions, I believe home modifications can make a real difference in people's lives.

I created Adaptive Roots to help people avoid long-term care facilities and stay in the comfort of their homes by adapting their environment to fit the person. 

I received my BS and Masters of Occupational Therapy from Quinnipiac University and also a former D-1 softball player. Go Bobcats!


I was born and raised in sunny San Diego, CA. I love spending time at dog beach with my dog, playing pickleball, and tending to my indoor jungle of house plants.
