Nina Salarno-Besselman is committed to giving back and has been serving our community for decades. Giving back is not a hollow saying or tagline –it’s her priority. In both her legal practice and in her community efforts, she believes in rolling up our sleeves and making a difference in people’s lives.
Nina worked with Gold Country Church to establish free Community Resource Clinics for families and individuals.
