As a Senior Designer Nina has over 9 years of experience on projects ranging from commercial and hospitality, to healthcare and retail. Her expertise derives from the diversity and complexity of designing commercial and institutional environments. She has worked on multiple successful medical office buildings, corporate interior refurbishments, restaurant tenant improvements, high-end residential remodels and private medical practices.
She delivers an extensive degree of creativity and latitude, and has brought widely varying concepts into reality in her work. Taking projects from the beginning stages of visioning and developing unique branding environments specific to each client is her expertise; delivering projects on schedule and on budget is as well. She takes the responsibility to lead the project team to conceptualize the project as a whole, sets the initial design direction and makes critical aesthetic decisions throughout the project while integrating input from her clients. Nina is committed to a very collaborative design process. It is her goal to create lasting environments and she believes understanding who the client is, and the message they want to deliver to their audience, is the most important aspect of thoughtful design.
Outside the office Nina loves to travel, camp, and stay active, whether it be cycling or hiking. Some of the best weekends spent are taking local trips to Monterey Wine Country with her family and friends. Gardening, gourmet cooking for her husband, and hanging with her kiddies are her most favorite pastimes.
