Nilka is a witty, strong minded, outgoing, and no nonsense person. In a crowd of a million people she stands out because of the energy that she illuminates where ever she goes. Nilka’s inspiration for what she does is her three beautiful daughters.
She is an army brat that was born in Monterey California in 1980. She was raised by a single mother who immigrated to America from Panama. She has three siblings’ two brothers, and a sister. She lived in Brooklyn until the age of 5 yrs old, and sadly that year her grandmother passed away from breast cancer. The devastation of the death of her grandmother made Nilka decide she wanted to be a nurse.
