Born in New York City, Nova Walton-Marriott is an Author, Empowerment/Career Coach and Founder of Hier Self, LLC, a multi-functional, philanthropic business dedicated to uplifting others. While growing up in Jamaica Queens, Nova envisioned herself as an educator but life made way for a career and educational path in Criminal Justice.
Soon after graduating with an Associate’s Degree in Paralegal Studies, Nova gave birth to her son Torey and took two years off to care for him. Eager to further her education, she applied to a Pharmacy Program at St. John’s University of the desire to divert her education from Paralegal Studies. Unfortunately, the program was not a good fit and after a month of enrollment, she elected to speak with an Academic Advisor and transferred into the Criminal Justice Program. She obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1998.
Living in New York, a single parent and encountering difficulty breaking into the Criminal Justice field, Nova worked several jobs in retail and eventually secured a position in the healthcare field. In 2003, she relocated to Baltimore, Maryland where she continued to work administrative jobs until 2007.
