Nina Dooley

LINC Housing

Vice President, Corporate Development

Job Functions: Business Development, Legal


Nina is responsible for guiding Linc's corporate growth and presence in the marketplace through strategic partnerships, industry participation, public relations, company publications, and events. A key focus for Nina is expanding Linc's relationships with a wide range of cross-sector partners to expand our pipeline, deepen our collaboration with the health industry, pursue social investment, and expand services and opportunity for residents.

Nina's experience includes management and marketing in both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors including health, banking, legal, and housewares industries. Her years in the manufacturing sector included product creation, licensing, and the role of account executive to national chains. After the tragic death of a homeless man on the property of her local church, Nina, with her husband and 12 others, began Shared Bread, a weekly meal to feed the hungry now in its 27th year. After a few years of volunteer leadership in the kitchen, Nina changed her career to help create more housing for those who need it most. She added Linc Housing to her client list in 1999 and joined the leadership staff in 2004.

Nina serves as a board member of Southern California Association of NonProfit Housing (SCANPH). She is a member of the ULI LA Leadership Council as well as the Long Beach City College Foundation Helping Homeless LBCC Students Associate Group. Nina has served in leadership roles at First United Methodist Church in Redondo Beach where she continues to serve on the steering committee for Shared Bread. She is a graduate of Occidental College, has a Certificate in Fund Raising and Institutional Development from UCLA Extension, and is an alum of the USC Ross Minority Program in Real Estate. Her family background, which includes commercial construction as well as leadership in the cause of fair housing, fuels her enthusiasm for Linc's mission and has served her well in addressing the intense need for affordable housing in California.

Nina enjoys cooking for family and friends, baking, and gardening. She and her husband continue to volunteer at Shared Bread.
