Nina Withrington PT, DPT
Since childhood Nina has always felt a sense of self-awareness and an interest in other people. Becoming a Physical Therapist was a natural fit for her; combining her philosophy of continuous self-improvement with her love of helping others. Her extensive travel experiences have taken her around the globe and have allowed her to broaden her perspective regarding the Physical Therapy field. With over 11 years of experience as a Physical Therapist, Nina has continued to change and grow within the field as a clinician, researcher, and teacher.
Over time Nina has seen a great change in the landscape of Healthcare, with more of a hustle & hurry philosophy emerging. But she also sees how video games have the potential to revolutionize Physical Therapy as a vehicle by which fun, increased engagement, and social interaction can be woven into the rehabilitation process, improving outcomes for patients.
At Blue Marble Game Co. Nina is now responsible for our community outreach; talking to interested parties, setting up & implementing our focus groups, and communicating the results with our production team. Her role with research & production is unique in regards to video game development and is vital to our development process. She excels at balancing the voice of the user with the realities of science and the constraints of production.
