There, she coordinated all communications between state, federal, and local governments and organizations for the 6-state region.
Nina obtained her master’s degree in 2019 from Penn GSE in Intercultural Communication, during which she performed and published an original ethnographic study on urban bilingual education. In her past lives she has also worked as a software engineer and most notably, a sous chef of one of the most famous restaurants in San Francisco! She is originally from Washington, D.C. and lives in West Philly with her partner Danny and her rotating cast of senior foster dogs.
