Hello! I'm Nina
As the Community & Operations Manager at Co.World Winter Park, I am responsible for supporting the members and for the improvement of organizational efficiency, specifically in administrative, programmatic and financial operations to accelerator development and long-term success. I combined analytical skills with creativity to lead the organization towards achieving greater operational efficiency and growth. I have a passion for the entrepreneurial community and possess a strong understanding of business to be able to contribute to the organizational strategic planning process. As the Community & Operations Manager I focus on the logistics of running a business while working in an innovative environment with regular interactions with local entrepreneurs, local corporate employees, and other professionals.
As an entrepreneur myself, I have participated in many organizations to grow my leadership skills including, ToastMasters, StarterStudio, Rollins Venture Plan Competition, weVenture (women's entrepreneur course), as well as pitching my own startup idea at 1 Million Cups. With those skills I have created and organized over 50 events including lunch & learns, Young Entrepreneur Social, StarterStudio's Pitch Night & Founder's Talks, Rollins Think Tank and various other entrepreneurial events.
In my free time I run a fundraiser The First Noel, a toy drive I co-founded in 2017. We have helped over 200 kids in need for Christmas while raising over 400 toys. I also enjoy volunteering with Caring Canines, where we visit the nursing homes and hospitals with my Therapy Dog, Reese.
Talents include: Web Design, Digital Media, Project Management, Business Strategy, and Community Leadership.
