“What a pleasure to get to work with Nina! Nina dug in with me, grounded me, reminded me why I do the work I do, and reignited the good intentions and high hopes on behalf of which I work. And she wrapped all of this in a warm blanket of fun and ease. Nina kept kindly pointing me back to my inner voice — to my bones — versus setting me on a course to memorize some new skill. This of course brought me to a new relationship with my self and any audience. Her process is not easy, but simple, profound and durable. And knowing she so clearly practices what she teaches makes it all the more wonderful to work with her. What a gem she is.”
— BJ Miller, ED of Zen Hospice
“Some years ago, without any prior stage experience, I dared myself to create a solo show called Strange Travel Suggestions. Nina met with me several times before the show opened. The insights she shared were profound, and Nina's clear, specific guidance remains the most valuable asset in my tool kit. Her instruction proved so valuable, in fact, that I printed out "Nina's Rules" (with some tweaks of my own) and have read them before every one of the hundreds of performances I've given since 2003. Her coaching gifts were the bedrock of my stage work — and they still inspire and center me as I step into the lights.”

"The spiritual approach you take to your teaching made days beautiful ... You said, ‘it is a time to let the subconscious have its way with you,’ and indeed it did ... revelations and breakthroughs from all."
