Michael Levberg and Nina Levberg welcomed Irina into the world in Russia. Then, the family relocated to the USA and made Chicago their home. She was also the lone child in the household.
She was a waitress and went to Stevenson High School. After graduating from DePaul University, she obtained a position in digital marketing for the pharmaceutical sector.
