Originally born in Charlotte, NC; Nieshia found her way to Atlanta as a student at Clark Atlanta University in the mass media arts program. She worked as a student in the University's local CAU-TV station and later pursued her masters at Savannah College of Art and Design. Nieshia was fortunate to gain two black women mentors as professors at the respective institutions. It was with the support of these women that she networked and began her professional career. With a one year old son, young family, and lots of determination, at the recommendation of her mentors she quit her full time Senior position at Emory University to follow her dreams of being a television producer. A leap of faith that returned tenfold. Since then Nieshia has crafted and honed her talents; possessing the capacity to connect with stories and people from all walks of life.

Particularly as it relates to women, she hopes to serve as both an example and a resource that being successful within your industry doesn't require choosing between your career and your family, "We can have it all" she insists. It is because of communities like that of South Fulton where Nieshia grew her family and her future.
