Nakia has held a passion for helping others since Kindergarten, yet that passion ignited towards empowering others as she endured and overcame hardships. Nakia has overcome early childhood trauma and knows the importance of transforming pain into a purpose by helping others. 
















Nakia founded Be Wyse Life Coaching amidst many difficulties. These difficulties qualified her to understand the needs of others and the power of navigating them towards a transformed positive mindset amid turbulence. She is no stranger to turmoil but knows how to turn pain into passion.  During the start of Be Wyse Life Coaching, Nakia faced the dissolution of marriage, the passing of her father, and the loss of a grandparent. Yet each tragedy has strengthened Nakia's drive toward turning the pain experienced into a journey of helping others. Over the years she has discovered many passions rooted in service and impact. Drawing in on those values and formalized professional life coach training, Nakia is able to help clients design the life they desire. Join Nakia today in the transformational journey of being Wyse.
