In addition to acting, she also had interests in scouts and has been a part of the world scout organization since she was 10, with which she visited the beautiful forests and mountains of her country.

At the age of less than 18, Nevena left her hometown to study at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts in Belgrade. From those years, to the present day, professional journeys in the world of acting begin. As an acting student, in 2011 Nevena got her first leading role in the TV series Lime Blossom in the Balkans, which was broadcast on the national television in Serbia, RTS.

For this project, in which six dancers, a live orchestra and two actors participated, Nevena is signing dramatization, directing and acting. After the premiere of the play Little Prince, the renowned Boško Buha Children's Theater in Belgrade takes over this play and puts it on its official repertoire.

In the same year, Nevena got the main role in the Croatian TV series Vatre ivanjske. On that occasion, she moved to Zagreb for a year. After the broadcast of this series, Nevena became a recognizable face in the entire Balkans.
