Tina hails from the gritty, suburban landscape of Boonton, New Jersey – a town best known as the punch line of many jokes in the Sopranos. When she wasn’t playing touch football in the street with her brother, Nick, or listening to Beatles songs backwards to find out if Paul really was dead, she was performing…in any way she could. From cheerleading and band competitions, to ballet recitals and school plays, Tina was always rehearsing for something.
She attended Rutgers University and graduated in 1990 with a BA in Communications. Having absolutely no idea what to do with that degree, Tina found herself, days after graduation, pushing the mail cart at the prestigious William Morris Agency as an agent trainee. After three years at WMA, she was recruited by ICM (International Creative Management) to help create and build their scale voiceover department. While being an agent was an incredibly rewarding experience, Tina knew she had yet to satisfy the acting bug that was still buzzing inside of her. So, having gained perspective of the business side of acting (oh, alright… despite having gained this perspective), she decided to trade in her (next to the) corner office overlooking Central Park, for a spot on a dirty classroom floor back at Rutgers University in order to pursue
her Master’s Degree in Acting from William Esper’s, Mason Gross School of the Arts. Armed with a shiny diploma and the number to a killer Beverly Hills hair salon, Tina moved out to Los Angeles to begin her career in 1999 and never looked back. Since then, she has worked steadily in film and television. Credits include: Jane The Virgin, Castle, Parks and Recreation, Two and a Half Men, Numb3rs, Boston Legal, CSI, Cold Case and many more. She can also be heard every Monday night as the voice of the HGTV hit series, Love It or List It as well as countless TV and radio commercials and promos. Tina received a second Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology in 2013. She is the proud mom to a hilarious and uber-talented daughter, named Callie Okun, who makes every day better than the one before.
