Nubia became interested in geology and paleontology at the age of 7 while digging in the earth and researching stones, plants and animal fossils of Michigan.

She taught science for grade levels Pre-K – grade 8, for ten years. She has dedicated a great deal of her life toward uplifting the Black community and will continue in this work. "There is much to be done. I am confident with the young brilliant minds that I have encountered are a small sample of the actual number just waiting for their chance." With a B. A. in Anthropology, she has worked at major museums in the Detroit area, such as the Wayne State University Anthropology Museum, The Henry Ford Museum, The Detroit Institute of Arts and now she is presently working as a registrar, which is the caretaker of the collections at the Charles H.

She has recently been offered employment as an English instructor and a scholarship from the University of Khartoum in Sudan, where she will actively engage in the field study of The Sacred Cities of Ancient Nubia while teaching English and pursing her Masters degree and Ph.
