Nina joined Abingdon Square Veterinary Clinic in July 2018 as a Client Service Specialist. She realized she loved animals at an early age when caring for her first dog, a Chihuahua named Zsa Zsa. Her first experience working with animals was at Bideawee adoption center in New York City. She learned a lot about veterinary and behavioral medicine there. She found it very fulfilling to work with animals, so she started working at a veterinarian uptown. Nina was born and raised on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. She currently lives with her 2 dogs, Little Bit and Sarge, and 2 black cats, Tom and Jerry.
