About The Trainers …
Nina is a trained and certified coach and founder of Pave Your Way®, specializing in career growth and development, leadership and team building and individual branding. As the former Director of Corporate Marketing for a publicly traded travel and leisure company, she brings over 17 years of marketing experience to her clients and believes the most important brand a person can build is their own individual brand.
Nina has worked on both the agency and client sides of advertising and marketing, and she has led large, multi-departmental teams with as many as 100 people. She’s overseen accounts and led winning pitches for big name brands such as Kraft, Shell Oil Company, Cadbury-Schweppes, Johnson & Johnson, 3M, and American Crew on the agency side. She also became notorious with leading her teams to consistent double digit growth, year-after-year, while on the client side at Vail Resorts. And, quite honestly, there were many big endeavors on Nina’s career path that failed miserably, and it’s worth noting that these were the moments that grew her the most, both personally and professionally.
Specializing in the coaching method of Core Energy Coaching, Nina is also a trainer and workshop facilitator for iPec (Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching), as well as a master practitioner in the Energy Leadership Index (ELI) assessment. And, it goes without saying that Nina is a self-proclaimed paver, who firmly believes that anyone can accomplish anything, if they develop their own self-supportive belief system.

Our Gourmet Chef, Tito Santamaria
Tito grew-up in Mexico City eating the delicious food made by his mother. He noticed how much love she put into her food and how happy it made other people.He started to get curious about food and all that was involved with it – the family sitting around the table laughing and talking about their days and having unexpected visitors, surprisingly right at dinner time. Tito’s interest in food had crystalized into a passion.
Today, Tito is a self-trained Chef with a true love for food. He was the Sous Chef at Andina Peruvian restaurant in Portland, OR, Amada in Philadelphia, PA., and O’Donell’S Pour house in Sea Isle City, NJ. Tito has also had his hands in numerous other projects like the creation of menus for The Radio Room in Portland to personal Chef for families in Sea Isle City, Portland and Seattle.
He currently resides in Denver and has already done a couple of projects with some local restaurants in the Cherry Creek and Highlands neighborhoods. With a focus on seasonal produce from farm to table, Tito’s cooking is fresh, bold, flavorful and prepared with heart, soul and plenty of creativity.
