My name is Nakia Tillman, I am a children’s book author, Family Support Specialist for the Early Education for the Trinity Alliance Organization, and Co-Chair for BirthNet. I attended the Sage College of Albany and earned my Associates Degree in Liberal Arts. I transferred to the College of St. Rose where I received my B.A in Education.
However, after I graduated I started working for various daycares instead of applying for teaching jobs in the high schools. I was an after school director for the various sites in the Albany Public School District and I enjoyed working with the young children. While working for the Capital District YMCA daycare I found my strength and passion working with the birth kindergarten population. I was fortunate to attend a training on baby brain development as one of the training requirements for the YMCA daycare. After this particular training, I knew that this is the work I needed to be doing, which is bringing the information to my community and parents about their child’s development in a more personal way.
