Hi! My name is Nikki Stanton and I am a professional soccer player for the Chicago Red Stars in the National Women’s Soccer League, as well as for Perth Glory in the W-league in Australia. Sports have been my life since as long as I can remember. Basketball, gymnastics, track, tennis, volleyball… I did them all. I chose to dedicate all of my time to soccer when I was in high school. I sure am glad I did!
A few months before attending Fairfield University on a soccer scholarship, I tore my ACL. I missed the sport so much, that I knew from then on that I wanted to play soccer for a living. I realized I just couldn’t see my life without it. After graduating college I tried out for two professional teams and got let go. I stuck with it and tried out for a third team. I went on to get a contract that year! I am now going into my 6th year as a professional soccer player. I get to travel around the world and do what I love.
As I have gotten older I have really learned the importance of mental and physical preparation in order to allow my body to perform at its best. NOW® has been able to help me be on top of my game. I use their products daily and have noticed a significant difference in my ability to prepare to do what I love.
