On a Personal Note

Seven months of training for, and then climbing, Mt. Kilimanjaro has made Nina a lifelong hiking enthusiast. She hits the trails every chance she gets and happily brings along the occasional inquisitive client or audience member, who has become interested in hiking (after hearing her Kilimanjaro keynote). Look out! YOU could be her next guest hiking companion!

Nina’s Summarizing Platform Message and Challenge

Life is change and work is change, but passion for your profession, and for all you do, is optional; and each one of us gets to choose. So: “Make your choice, adventurous stranger, strike the bell and bide the danger, or wonder ’til it drives you mad, what would have followed if you had.”
