Dr. Nina was born in Sarasota, Florida and returned soon after graduating from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002. She has proudly serviced the animals of the greater Sarasota area for 15 years and was the former owner of Dr. Nina’s Animal Hospital of Sarasota and Dr. Nina’s Animal Hospital of Parrish which was transitioned into the care of Southern Veterinary Partners (SVP). Dr. Nina is compassionate about treating her patients as if they were her own loved ones. She enjoys all medical aspects of veterinary medicine, but her special interests are in preventive medicine, dermatology, chronic internal medicine cases and general/emergency/dental surgery. Outside of the veterinary field, Dr. Nina enjoys spending time with her family. Both her son and her daughter are competitive swimmers so you can often find her and her husband at the side of the pool volunteering as USA Swimming Officials or just being her kids #1 fan.
