Nina was born in Los Angeles but spent much of her childhood in Finland where she grew up enjoying the outdoors and learning to speak Finnish, Swedish and English. After studying finance in Helsinki and Berlin she traveled extensively, immersing herself in different cultures and teaching English in Asia. Before moving back to California in 2017, Nina worked in banking and finance in Finland. She spent her free time restoring her families fishing boat and spending Summer nights on the sea.
While she enjoys the Southern California sun Nina still makes time to travel, most recently to the Amazon jungle.
