Nadia Yanni was born in Beirut, Lebanon. At age 3, she moved with her parents and 8 siblings to Sweden. When Nadia was 14, her mother passed away, and her older sister assumed the mother role. Nadia's sister became a registered nurse which ultimately inspired Nadia to follow in her footsteps.
In 1989 Nadia moved to California, and continued to work as a registered nurse, while also becoming an accomplished athlete in professional Bodybuilding, winning the California State Championship in 1992, and other titles in her career.
Nadia then parlayed her registered nursing experience when she founded the nursing registry "911 Staffing, Inc." which ultimately was sold to "AppleOne Employment Services", where Nadia remained as their Director for "All'sWell Health care Staffing.”
Nadia broadened her entrepreneurial talents when she became Executive Producer for a film production company. Her films have garnered numerous prestigious awards at the Cannes, St. Tropez, and various other film festivals within the United States and Canada.
Nadia exercises her passion as an animal rights activist by sponsoring and endowing numerous animal rights organizations, aside from caring for two rescue dogs of her very own. As a senior registered nurse within the Emergency/Trauma Unit, Nadia has amassed a tremendous amount of experience in saving lives.
By working with KASIF she now intends to utilize her unique skill sets to make KASIF an international success and "pay it forward" by enhancing the lives of today's youth.
