Nina joined WZZM in June of 2016 as a multi-skilled journalist. She came to Grand Rapids after spending two years in Lubbock, Texas as a reporter for KJTV.

A South Florida native, she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Interpersonal Organizational Communication from the University of Central Florida. During school, Nina interned as a digital reporter with WESH 2 in Orlando. She competed nationally in speech and debate and knew very early on that she wanted to be a journalist.

Nina grew up in Ft. Lauderdale so being back in a city atmosphere makes her feel at home. She’s a coffee, yoga and animal lover. She loves to take her dog, Sadie, on long walks and to the lakeshore.
