Nakia is the rhythm of the company – or in layman’s terms “Practice Manager.” Nakia has always kept close to heart the morals her grandmother instilled in her such as “always treat people how you want to be treated, people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Nakia is industrious in her position and is very proud of the work she does.
Nakia started at a very young age from humble beginnings on the 4th floor medical/surgical ward at Roper Hospital. This section of the hospital was nicknamed “The Wild Wild West” because an individual needed to have the delicate balance of having both tough skin and a deep compassion for the patients being treated in the era when HIV/AIDS was in ongoing research stage. Unbeknownst to her, this would be the time she began to hone her craft for compassion and empathy for people. Nakia continued her career in medicine by working in high volume medical clinics where she sharpened her skills.
Nakia is the proud mother of two very beautiful daughters in whom she has instilled the core values and morals taught to her by the phenomenal women in her family. Nakia’s mottos include: “Never take for granted what God has blessed upon you always remain humble!” “Always treat people with respect!” “Work hard at everything you do!” “It can take you 20 years to build your reputation and only 5 minutes to destroy it.” Nakia gives back to her community performing various acts of charity as a member of The Order of the Eastern Star, The Order of The Golden Circle of Perfection and Daughter of Isis.
