Her early life and career beginnings

Working with these global brands afforded her worldwide recognition and a thriving career. She did ad campaigns for Carl’s Jr. and other brands and helped relaunch Photo Magazine, a French magazine.
After setting goals of appearing on the Sports Illustrated, Nina crushed it by appearing in the notable Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2012 and was afterward named the issue’s Rookie of the Year. Having met with her agency, who asked what she wanted to do next, her reply was more editorials, television, and high-fashion modeling.

The stunning model accomplished the feat of gracing the 50th anniversary of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue’s cover in 2014 alongside influential personalities like Chrissy Teigen and Lily Aldridge. An accomplishment she fondly regards as the highlight of her modeling career.
As a five-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model, she did several photoshoots in Zanzibar by photographer Ruven Afanador, wearing various swimsuits by different designers. While still with Elite Models in 2015, they competed against other modeling agencies like Ford, Next, Wilhelmina for the golden plane ticket in Le Sutra’s Model Beach Volleyball Tournament that Wildfox hosted.
In August 2015, IMG models signed her, and in 2017, Nina appeared on the cover of Maxim’s magazine for its March issue.

Nina once competed for a Red Lobster where the reward was a picture post on their Instagram. She went to the restaurant with her boyfriend and ate so much food, took a picture with a lobster in her mouth.
