For Nina Westbrook, Family Is Everything
Family is central to everything Nina Westbrook does. As a mother of three children and wife of NBA All-Star, Russell Westbrook, her days start with a wakeup call from her little ones. When she’s not spending time with her own family, she’s helping others, as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and founder of Bene by Nina, which provides emotional wellness tools and workshops. It was Nina’s own mother who inspired her journey to help others on their journey toward mental wellbeing.
To mark Women’s History Month, we talked to women who inspired us with their impact, including Nina. Below she shares more about her everyday life — including how her Bluejay Bike fits into it.
What gets you out of bed each morning?
What’s the one thing you cannot live without?
My family. I rely on their love and support daily. I don’t know where I would be without them.
Who inspires you the most and why?
My mom. She was a single mother raising 4 children yet she always went after her dreams. She completed medical school to create a better life for us, and always encouraged me to continue educating myself. To this day, I consider my pursuit of higher education and my decision to become a licensed marriage and family therapist some of the best things I’ve ever done.
What do you love most about your Bluejay Bike?
My Bluejay is so chic and makes it so easy to get outside and do fun outdoor activities with my family!
What’s your favorite place to ride your Bluejay?
I love riding my Bluejay bike down to Santa Monica beach!
