Nina Birnbaum

Nina fell in love with New York City after visiting from Pasadena, California. She found her way into the world of advertising with graphic production and project management, obtaining Project Manager certification in 2013.  She took a break from the ad business to develop a line of skin care oils, and as part of the process, Nina developed a deep interest in health and nutrition, becoming a New York State Certified Health Coach.

Peripherally, Nina has always loved both wine and ships, so when the opportunity to join T. Elenteny Imports arose, she was thrilled.  Nina brings her varying professional background and specifically, project management, which allows her to flourish in all of the traffic details of the shipping business.  Nina handles each container like an individual project, with it’s own deadlines, third parties, and customer needs.

Nina explores all that New York’s museums and galleries have to offer, especially, modern, contemporary and African art.  She sees as many live music shows as possible, especially Afrobeat and world music. Nina enjoys watching boat traffic on the East River as she lives in Brooklyn Heights with her family.
