Nina spent many years at the forefront of digital development, producing websites and digital products. She focused a great deal on teaching internet skills to children, through after school programs at the Children's Aid Society in NYC, through her work with PBS and Sesame Workshop digital teams, and as part of the core team at Viacom that created and launched Noggin (the first children's channel to fully integrate their digital media platforms with their programming). She continues to provide digital consulting and social media management to nonprofits, startups, restaurants, and online retailers.
After getting her Masters from Harvard Graduate School of Education in Developmental Psychology, Nina worked at Harvard University and Harvard Medical School's McLean Hospital, teaching graduate classes in Developmental Psychology, organizing psychology/education conferences, counseling graduate students, editing an Academic Journal on Developmental Psychology, and serving as Communications Director for a Harvard-based nonprofit that provided inclusion and mental health programs to Boston Public Schools. She also provided training and support for replication of these programs in schools around the world.
Nina writes as much as possible to help promote a more complete, more positive view of Autistics than what is usually found in the public domain. She is an advocate for Autistic Acceptance, Inclusion, and Disability Civil Rights, with a focus on nonverbal and mostly-nonverbal Autistics.
