Nina’s love for marketing and communications work began in 2004 when she was asked to help put together a newsletter. She realized she wanted to make a career for herself in this field, so she began her education journey to get her marketing degree.
For Nina, being able to promote causes she cares about is extremely rewarding. She held previous marketing positions at Emspace + Lovgren, Physicians Mutual and InfoGroup. She brings over 10 years of marketing experience to Outlook Enrichment (Enrichment).
Nina learned about Enrichment through a co-worker. She wanted to become of a board member at a nonprofit making a difference in the community. She liked what she learned about Enrichment and was one of the founding board members in 2019. Having firsthand knowledge of the impact of Enrichment’s mission, Nina is excited to continue helping people through their vision loss journey in her new role as director of fund development.
In this role, Nina will foster relationships with corporations, foundations, individuals and key personnel. She will also cultivate support for Enrichment’s programs addressing the need of technology training and cultural, recreational, and educational opportunities for the people in our region who are blind or have vision loss.
Nina received a bachelor’s degree in marketing management from Bellevue University, where she later earned her master’s degree in management. Her communication, project management, content development, and strategic thinking will garner support for the programs that help people with vision loss live independently in an inclusive community.
Nina is motivated every day by her husband and son. They keep busy watching their son play baseball, basketball and golf.
When Nina is not working or attending a sporting event, she loves to read. A personal goal is to read one book each month in 2022. Nina also enjoys baking but gives away the goodies to keep them out of the house.
Nina has always loved country music. She met country singer Keith Urban while out with friends the same night she met her husband. She keeps the photo on her desk to remember meeting her husband and, of course, that she got to talk to Keith Urban in her hometown of Omaha.
Nina loves going to the dentist. And, if you are ever at a breakfast meeting with Nina, don’t offer her a doughnut. She is not a fan.
