At Heartly House, we believe in a proactive approach to preventing violence through education. Our Outreach Program serves to raise awareness across Frederick County, MD on topics of intimate partner abuse, sexual assault, and child abuse by educating thousands of community members each year.

She has served at Heartly House for 6 years in a variety of roles in addition to community educator, such as providing direct support, crisis intervention, and advocacy to survivors of trauma. In addition, Nina brings outside experience working with survivors of domestic sex trafficking in Washington, D.C.
