The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee advances human rights through grassroots collaborations.
Senior Associate for Immersion Learning Programs
Over the last decade, Gina has worked to understand how experiential education and facilitated travel experiences can most effectively be used to empower individuals and communities to deeply engage with spirituality, justice, and self-development. Prior to joining UUCSJ, she spent several years leading U.S. teenagers on semester-long trips in South America with Where There Be Dragons. She was also the inaugural on-site director for the Princeton Bridge Year Program in Bolivia, a nine-month service gap year program. She served with the Peace Corps for three years in Bolivia and Ecuador.
Gina’s love of community and interconnection first manifested as a deep desire to understand our natural world. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Reed College and a joint Master of Science degree in Environment and Resources and Agronomy from the University of Wisconsin—Madison.
