Nina is a friend and former employee of Nat Bussichio who is first seen giving Nat a massage at The Peach Pit, to which he is responding positively. She then tells Brandon Walsh she'll have to schedule a time for him. She later gave him a massage, which Brandon described to Steve Sanders in detail.
Steve convinces Brandon that Nina is hot for him. She later reappears at The Peach Pit, telling Brandon about being in a sensory deprivation tank naked, where she is able to contemplate her private thoughts.
She later sets up a time to do an herbal wrap on Brandon, which he mistakes for a date. When Brandon shows up, she introduces him to her fiance, Richard Cohen, thereby destroying Brandon's hopes of sex. She then gives him the Tibetan Book of the Dead as a gift.
