Nina holds a masters in Clinical Psychology with a specialty in Somatic Psychology from Santa Barbara Graduate Institute. She is a graduate and mentor of APPPAH’s Prenatal & Perinatal Educator certification program (PPNE) and has been creating connection and working with babies in person and virtually for over 10 years.

Prior to accepting the Director role for APPPAH, Nina lived, studied and taught at Sri Kaleshwar’s Soul University, in India for 5 years and most recently worked in an Integrative and Functional Medicine Pediatric clinic in the US, where she saw a greater need for prenatal and perinatal educators to be integrated throughout our medical, mental and behavioral health and educational systems internationally. Recently moved from CA, USA, Nina resides in Leipzig, Germany with her husband and her 5 year old son. Nina believes through expanding our view on conception, pregnancy, birth, and parenting, we will create new generations of strong, conscious and loving children, equipped to face the challenges of our modern and unstable world.
