Nina grew up in Maine, earned both a B.S. in Animal Science and an M.S. in Accounting from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, passed the National Uniform CPA Exam at the first sitting, and has been a licensed Virginia CPA since 1995. She founded her own firm in 1997. A bit of a control freak around the office, she prefers to work solo – with the exception of her trusty standard poodle companions, Francie and Etta. When she is not crunching numbers, she enjoys foxhunting, playing polo, skiing, and the joy of good friends and family.
