BA (Hum), CLA, 2012
Nina is an inspiring role model of wellness. I appreciate her because despite being a very clean eater, and ultra-active, she maintains her approachability and is always looking to inspire others in a non-threatening way. Nina is often bringing in her healthy twists on an unhealthy food. She'll bring in a healthier chocolate peanut butter cup, complete with accompanying recipe. Instead of being condescending or placing blame when others make unhealthy choices, she is the first one to cheer you on when you eat well and exercise. In addition, the energy, enthusiasm and preparation level she brings to her cycling and group exercise classes are second to none. I am blessed to be able to work with Nina at SFU Recreation and she is competent, supportive and always seems to produce unique solutions to the issues at hand.
