Nina's story

I was born and raised in Chihuahua, MX. and Yes, I do love Chihuahua’s I have three of them, We love bring doggies to work days ; -)... I was a very small child growing up with four brothers and I loved competing, I quickly learned that to win, I had to think quicker, act faster and to show the best results. I was never all that interested in school subjects, my mind always wandered to far away places. After college, I had an opportunity to travel to the United States to learn English while being a nanny for a family in Florida. It was there that I met my husband James, we were married soon after and have been together for 22 years. Together, we have faced incredible obstacles. In my late 20’s I was diagnosed with kidney failure and after a failed kidney transplant, I spent almost an entire decade trying to regain my health. In 2013, my amazing sister donated a kidney and I had a successful second transplant and another chance for a new life. After experiencing the world from behind the windows of my home, hospitals rooms, doctors offices and clinics for so many years, I was ready to take on the world, three months after walking out of the hospital for the last time, we started Got Dirty Blinds? My greatest satisfaction is knowing that I have reached that place where the scars of my past struggles have become dear old friends and my dream for the future is to touch people’s lives and to spread little seeds of hope and happiness wherever I may go.
