Nia attended Greensville County High School, and was involved in the drama class, actively taking part in all plays there. Her acting talent was noticed by her teachers, who encouraged her to take further steps in this direction and pursue an acting career. After her matriculation in 1987, she entered Emerson College in Boston, and graduated from it in 2000 with a BA in media arts. Being interested in fashion and styling, Nia then took several courses on that in Los Angeles.
Dreaming about an acting career in Hollywood, Nia got back to California right after her graduation, and started searching for jobs. Having no acting offers, she accepted the opportunity to hold the position of a casting assistant for the projects called “The Education of Max Bickford” in 2001. Encouraged with a fortunate chance, Nia brilliantly performed all her responsibilities and gained a good reputation in the entertainment industry. Developing her administrative career, Nia soon became a talent co-ordinator for another project, “Chappelle’s Show”, and then the same year she was promoted to the position of a creative director for “Tenderhearted Film”.
