Meet Gina, Financial Beginnings New Volunteer Coordinator Intern!

Hello Financial Beginnings readers!

I am the current Volunteer Coordinator Intern and the newest addition to Financial Beginnings. I am currently a senior at Portland State University (Go Vikings!) and will be graduating at the end of this term with a business degree in marketing. Besides enjoying numbers, being creative is a really important part of my life, which led me to marketing.

Most of my work experience in my adult life has been in health care administration; working in senior care facilities, nurse staffing agencies, and currently working for a local physical therapy company. I have been extremely lucky with my work history, but the best decision I ever made was to go back to school and finish my degree.

When not in school and studying I am an avid outdoor person; I love skiing, hiking, biking, swimming, yoga, and running. I can also make some pretty great knit and crochet items and pretty much any other crafting project. I like to travel, read, cook, and spend time with my friends and family. I am also a local, born and raised in Portland, Oregon.

I feel really lucky to get to spend this next term with Financial Beginnings! I really enjoy learning new things and working with people. Thank you so much for letting me introduce myself, I am looking forward to the next few months, you never know what will happen.
