At age 49 the in-demand performer is stronger, happier and healthier than ever— a vibrant, dynamic role model to women of all ages. In the s Nia added another facet to her career, re-inventing herself as an action star. Or fundraises and sponsors a school in Bali for the International Humanity Foundation, aiding their work in combating child trafficking? And exactly the sort of role model for a new generation of women aged forty and beyond who, like Nia, desire to look, feel and live their best.
When Nia Peeples decided to join the cast of CBS' Saturday-night staple "Walker, Texas Ranger," it wasn't because she thought it was the world's greatest acting opportunity. This was not a career choice. This was definitely a family choice. But I've been doing this for 15 years, and I'm growing and I'm changing and my desires are changing, and I'm not great at certain battles, where getting certain jobs are concerned. I think, when I first began, my work was much more exciting than my life, which was what drove me to my work.
