Gina has made a career in communications, working various gigs as a reporter, editor, copywriter, public relations consultant and social media strategist. The Pacific Northwest was supposed to be a professional pitstop on her way back to Washington, D.C. But then she discovered there was more to life than work.
Having grown up in a family where a hotel without room service was considered “roughing it,” she kickstepped outside her comfort zone after moving to the Pacific Northwest and learned to climb mountains. She also loves to hike, bike, ski and snowshoe with family and friends, and most recently started to explore Oregon’s waterways via a stand-up paddleboard. She’s eager to evangelize and help preserve the natural splendors of the state via the Mazamas.
