A native New Yorker, Nina was raised in Staten Island where her childhood was dedicated to Girl Scouting, piano lessons, and theatre. After mastering the art of shoveling snow, she relocated south to Virginia where she began her undergraduate career. Along with her studies she was a member of Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority and was elected president of the Student Government Association. Nina graduated from Virginia Wesleyan College with a BA in Spanish and International Studies. After graduation, Nina’s career spanned the east coast where her experience in project management, product marketing and event planning led her to Brand Fuel.
When she’s not at work, Nina spends her time visiting local farmers markets, cuddling with her dog Tootsie and researching new zero waste living tips. She is passionate about traveling and is eager to plan her next trip abroad which she hopes will be to France. Her dream is to have a picnic by the water lilies in Monet’s Garden.
