Nina is a music lover with a passion for greatness and human connection, which is why she’s so good at what she does.

She’s the first person who has sit through hours and hours of me playing her demos and explaining my vision for them.

For that, I am forever grateful!” — Natalie Joly, New England Recording Artist, Producer, and Songwriter

“When we get compliments on our name, MindForce, I nod my head, and silently thank Nina. She was the “mind” behind the name as we were brainstorming new names for our “to be created” consultancy.

Kudos to Nina!” Rob Steir, CEO and Founder, Entrepreneur
