Coach Nina had always wanted to be involved in gymnastics, but did not have the opportunity to do so until she was in high school when she joined the Maine East team. Nina believes joining the team was one of the greatest decisions she ever made. She loved gymnastics so much that she wanted to share that feeling with others and became the assistant coach at Maine East after graduation as well as an Instructional coach at Viking. Nina loves seeing her gymnasts feel accomplished when they gain a new skill. She feels it is important for her students to be enjoying their time in the gym and to love what they are doing. When not coaching, Nina attends the University of Illinois at Chicago as an Integrated Health and Science major.
