In 2015, at 46 and out of the blue, Nina started waking up drenched in sweat every morning at 4am. She soon discovered that she was entering peri-menopause, that netherworld state which would take her from relatively young to relatively old, and that realization jolted her into creating a closed Facebook group for her girlfriends so that she could ask some questions, commiserate, and get advice.
She called it “What Would Virginia Woolf Do?” in what she thought was a funny nod to a brilliant feminist she admired, a woman who chose to end it all in her late 50s.
Nina’s goal was to create a haven where she could talk about aging without feeling ashamed, and where she could get information and support that would help her on the rocky road to cronehood or aged bliss, or whatever it would be. She’s a lifelong New Yorker, born there in 1969. She graduated from Barnard College in 1990 and got a Masters in Narrative Medicine from Columbia in 2013. Nina also has four kids who are mostly launched, and serves as a trustee on the board of the Brooklyn Public Library.
